The Girona History Museum has added this portrait of Bishop Tomás de Lorenzana to its exhibition. The painting has been attributed to Manuel Tremulles (c. 1764), a pupil of Antoni Viladomat. In this painting the bishop proudly shows the plans for the chapel of Sant Narcís in the Church of Sant Feliu, one of his most important works of patronage, together with the construction of the hospice, projects linked to the academic ideas of architect Ventura Rodríguez.
