A man in a red skull cap and coat furred at the collar and cuff sits in a tattered green velvet chair with an open book on his lap. His head turns to the right gazing toward large manuscripts that are leaning on a red-clothed table with a skull. Behind him, to the left, is a hearth and distillation apparatus.
