It is partly a text-book, or manual of technique, and partly an essay. As a text-book it contains full directions for painting in Egg Tempera and for the making of the necessary grounds. As an essay it outlines a new method of painting in oil or oil emulsion, with suggestions both theoretical and practical. There is a logical connec tion between these two functions or we should not have included them in the same book. As a text-book on tempera painting, we have given directions, as precise and clear as possible, for the mak ing and use of those forms of egg tempera which we have found in the course of several years of experi menting to be the important fundamental forms. There are many variations of these forms which any one, with the experience these fundamental forms provide, can work out to suit his own taste. As the use of the right ground is of the utmost importance in both tempera and oil painting, we include full direc tions for the making and use of the most important tempera and oil grounds. The student who wishes a clear and concise manual of technique on tempera painting alone should find here all the information necessary, and in as practical a formas possible. It seems to us, however, that there is another important aspect of tempera; that is, its suitability as an underpainting for oil or oil emulsion. We have therefore given precise and practical direc tions on the preparation and use of tempera as an underpainting. If it seems to the reader that the language used is sometimes too elementary, it has been used deliber 2 EGG TEMPERA PAINTING ately, as it has always seemed to us that most manuals of technique are too vague and general in their direc tions. There is also a certain amount of repetition bot
