Current Issue

For 46+ years, the Aldrichimica Acta has been an international forum for the frontiers of chemical research. Articles, written by chemists from around the world, cover a variety of topics usually based on a synthetic theme involving organic, organometallic, bio-organic, or inorganic chemistry. Its Impact Factor (IF) has consistently been in the top three among comparable journals in the field of organic chemistry: IF = 11.786 (2010), 16.091 (2011), and 12.231 (2012) (Thomson Reuters; Journal Citation Reports®, 2010, 2011, and 2012 Science Edition).

Clues in Lady and Gentleman on Horseback by Aelbert Jacobsz Cuyp

Cuyp featured the leaves of the burdock plant prominently in a number of his paintings (Young Herdsmen with Cows; A Page with Two Horses; An Evening Landscape with Figures and Sheep). The leaves are believed to symbolize virtue, and an equestrian couple setting out for a hunt is thought to be an allegory for love. It may be that, in this painting, Cuyp is conveying the idea that the lady and the gentleman are newlyweds, who are embarking on their journey of life and love together.
