    A full length portrait of María Luisa Maldonado y Salabert, Marquesa de Torneros, daughter of the Count of Villagonzalo by Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida comes up at Bonhams in London on September 26. An exhibiton of Sorolla’s works runs at the National Gallery of Ireland until November 3. Letters from Sorolla to his wife Clotilde reveal that the present lot was a direct commission from the Count of Villagonzalo, who was himself a major art collector, and a close friend of the artist. The work, which comes up at a sale of 19th century European, Victorian and British Impressionist Art, is estimated at £180,000-250,000.
