Art and Alchemy by Jacob Wamberg
Book DescriptionThis collection of articles covering the time span from the Late Middle Ages to the twentieth century intends to challenge the current neglect of the interplay between esoteric knowledge and the visual arts. 'Art and Alchemy' indicates that alchemy indeed has several connections with art by examining some of the pictorial and literary books that disseminated alchemical symbols and ideas, delving into images, which in one way or another can be shown to appropriate and interpret alchemical ideas or environments, and expanding the scope of alchemical imagery by indicating structural affinities between alchemical processes and artistic creation.
