Southall first saw tempera paintings in 1883, during a tour of Italy. Seduced by the vibrancy and delicacy of Italian Renaissance temperas, he started to experiment with the technique. Thanks to Southall’s efforts, by 1900 tempera painting was well established in England and the Society of Painters in Tempera was founded. Southall uses areas of almost flat, rich colour within clearly defined outlines.
