Seated in a disorderly and rustic workshop, an alchemist examines a flask while scratching his head, deep in thought. Scattered about the floor are books, vessels, and a dog which has curled up in a pile of straw. More loose straw is everywhere, hanging in bundles from wooden beams or strewn on the floor. In the left background an assistant works at a bench, while a curl of smoke rises from the untended furnace.
