In Belle Epoch France, Dr. Samuel Jean Pozzi was known as Le Medecin de l’Amour – the love doctor. Devastatingly handsome, dynamic and brilliant, Dr. Pozzi was an eminent gynecologist and surgical innovator. His portrait was painted by John Singer Sargent in 1881 and this picture inspired Julian Barnes to explore this captivating doctor’s life and the many well-known figures he knew – Proust, Bernhardt, Wilde – first names not necessary.
