Pozzi portrait by Sargent

Dr. Pozzi At Home

1881, oil on canvas

Samuel Jean Pozzi was a Parisian gynecologist. Henry James said that this portrait by Sargent was comparable to the 'bearing' of a portrait by Vandyck. The posing is also likened to El Greco's Portrait of a Nobleman, a painting Sargent likely saw while in Spain in 1879.
