Transmutations--alchemy in art : selected works from the Eddleman and Fisher collections at the Chemical Heritage Foundation by Lawrence Principe ( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Alchemy made important contributions to the development of modern science while firing popular imagination so strongly that portrayals of the alchemist at work pervaded the arts. The more celebrated goals of alchemy, like transmutation of base metals into gold, still tease and tantalize. This book offers a thoughtful look at the role of the alchemist in the 17th and 18th centuries, as depicted in a selection of paintings from the Eddleman and Fisher Collections housed at the Chemical Heritage Foundation
