Description

In a light-filled workshop a physician is seated at a table covered with an imported red carpet; he is writing with a quill. He appears to be writing a prescription for the man waiting beside the desk. Scattered on the clean floor are books and pots. In the background three men are working beside a furnace and a distillation apparatus.
