The young lady represented here is Joaquina Márquez Rodríguez, daughter of Enrique Márquez and María Rodríguez. Her father, born in El Puerto de Santamaría, was a Marine and a Dentist. She always worked with the famous Florestán Aguilar y Rodríguez, "King's dentist" Alfonso XIII since 1900, the date on which she had replaced Fernando Ibáñez. He lived married in Madrid and her children were born here, two boys and two girls.
Joaquina was born in Madrid in 1910 and was a student of the Black Ladies. She died on December 19, 1931 in Davos, Switzerland, where she had been hospitalized for months in a hospital specializing in tuberculosis, a disease that she had contracted and that ended her life.
