Society of Tempera Painters
The Society of Painters in Tempera was founded in 1901 by Lady Herringham and by a group of painters whom a study of the Book of Cennino Cennini had inspired to a quest for better craftsmanship. The declared Object of the Society was “Improvement in the art of Tempera painting by the interchange of the knowledge and experience of the members.”
(John D. Batten 1925)
In 1997 The Society of Tempera Painters was established following the decline of the original Society.
