A scholar in his Study

Thomas Wijck

Hallwyl Museum

Hallwyl Museum

Formerly this figure has been identified as an alchemist. In fact there is nothing in his room to connect with alchemical experiments and he is simply a scholar. There was a well established tradition in Dutch 17th century painting of representing scholars in their studies. There is a very similar treatment of the subject by Wyck in the Gemäldegaleri at Kassel, Germany.
