Egg Tempera: Featured Works

Egg tempera is a fast-drying, water-soluble medium. In Europe, it was the most ubiquitous paint choice until the 16th century, when oil became more prominent. This playlist—inspired by a question we received for our #StumpACurator series—features works not just from egg tempera’s heyday, but from more recent periods as well.
