"Fireback With Gohory's Arms (65x 66 Cm)"
The Gohory family was originally from Tuscany, from 1321. Several branches of this family developed in the Marche de Treviso, then in Touraine from 1470 and held important positions such as treasurer, secretary of the king, controller and receiver general of finances or lieutenant of the artillery in Flanders. Jacques Gohory (1520-1572) remained titular of his office of lawyer in the Court of the Parliament until his death, but the last thirty-two years of his career were primarily devoted to the belles-lettres and the sciences. The medical, chemical and natural sciences will absorb it almost entirely, and its solitude, until then without interest, will become the Philosopher's Lycium, prototype of our Jardin des Plantes.
