"The Alchemist Studio"

Catalog Number: ORGCVR09

Additional Information

Our Chemist/Collector was fortunate to acquire one of the prime works of one of the most famous painters of the genre. Thomas Wyck’s (1616-1677) The Alchemist in His Studio, working among his books and papers. The painting is quite dark, but rich. For the cover we lightened it up a bit, benefiting from hidden features not visible in the original before cleaning. Notice Wyck’s upside down signature in the lower left near the globe. The painting is an excellent addition to our growing collection. See back page for reprints of painting s featured on all previous covers.
