Description:

Dr. Jean Pozzi was a groundbreaking late 19th/early 20th century Parisian gynecologist and GP who also had a very full and varied extracurricular sex life, to the fury of his wife and daughter. American artist John Singer Sargent depicted Pozzi at home in a provocative red bathrobe.  The painting was not exhibited outside the house during Jean’s life perhaps because of caution for his reputation.  The doctor went on to be a WWI war surgeon, later dying after being stabbed by a mentally ill patient.
