“At Yale, however,I did learn about egg tempera! At first I didn’t even want to take the course, since most students seemed to agree that it was a restrictive technique, allowing no room for improvisation and requiring laborious preparation, detailed drawings, tedious underpainting, etc. No wonder so few artists have used egg tempera in recent years.”
