Jörg Völlnagel, Alchemie. Die königliche Kunst. München, Hirmer, 2012.
The library recently acquired Vollnägel’s work on the royal art of alchemy, published by Hirmer Verlag. It is a beautiful and colourful book taking the reader on a journey through the Royal Art of Alchemy and its visual treasures. In the book you will find explanations about alchemical symbolism, the Splendor Solis Series, but also modern artworks with a marked alchemical touch.
