Engraved by Thomas Major after a painting of the same subject by David Teniers II, this print shows a young alchemist in a cap and apron working a pair of bellows before an open hearth. Distillation vessels, open books, tongs, and other tools sit close at hand. The workshop is large and spacious, with a window providing strong sunlight at right. A stuffed lizard specimen, likely an iguana, hangs overhead, as other alchemical workers labor in the background at a table.
