Egg tempera

Trying to teach myself classical egg tempera technique.

Annigoni is an elder deity of the medium.

Egg tempera is being revived, and I think it's the answer to the difficulties I've had painting the kinds of things I want to do.

More on this later...

I wonder where I can see egg tempera painting in the Middle Atlantic area USA.

The National Gallery in DC has quite a good collection of late Gothic/early Renaissance art. There's also quite a good collection at the Chicago Art Institute. I havent been, but I expect New York has a few.

Revived?? Iconographers never lost it.

I know. Thank God. Or the technique would have been completely lost.
