Herbariums of false alchemists are 17th century manuscripts similar to the essays of famous alchemists of the same period. Over the centuries the role of charlatan was spreads. The charlatan practiced a false alchemy and tried to pass the results of their experiments off as important elixirs or magic potions. In line with this thinking it can be said that contemporary artists are considered like charlatans from ordinary people. Being ironic about this topic I’ve realized my personal herbarium.
