An alchemist stands reading a book while mixing an experiment in the left foreground. Men are working by an open hearth in the back of the laboratory.

Inscription

Se 'l grand' arcano ritrovar intendi,
Ah cessa. Il tempo, a la fatica getti.
A miglior uso si riserbi l'Arte
Che all' altre suol essere Maestra, e due.
