Clarity of form and luminous translucent color are hallmarks of the egg tempera medium, which enjoyed its golden era during the early Renaissance. A relatively small number of contemporary artists still employ this venerable technique, typically in small, jewel-like figurative images. Our exhibit includes work by well-known tempera painters Michael Bergt, Koo Schadler, Fred Wessel, and the tandem of Scherer and Ouporov.
