A bearded, seated alchemist, wearing glasses and bright red shirt, bends over an open book on a desk stacked high with a mess of papers and glassware. The trail of books continues to the ground with broken and unbroken crockery, a large copper pan, firewood, and loose strands of straw. At the left middle ground two men work at a table, while behind them a man stands by a large furnace and pours the contents from one vessel into another. Further back, three workshop assistants stand near a small furnace, watching a pot as it heats.
