Jacques-Antoine Vallin: 'Dr Forlenze'

Explore the paintings

Joseph-Nicolas-Blaise Forlenze (1751? - 1833) was educated in Naples and later became an oculist and surgeon in Paris. The orders and decorations he wears, which include the Légion d'Honneur and the Order of St Michel, were probably added after 1807.

The mountain in the background is Vesuvius and the lighthouse may be one on the Molo in Naples.
