Egg Tempera Movement is devoted to presenting imaginative storytelling fine art of Elena Vladimir Baranoff and Anastasia Elena Baranoff.
Inspired by the realm of marvelous fairy tales and captivating legendary stories, the visionary artworks, painted in genuine egg tempera, capture the creative power of the artists, carrying to a world of inspirational fantasy.
Founded in 2013, Egg Tempera Movement revives thematic art, conveying ideas through unique visual experience, bringing back neglected beauty and harmony to fine art, in opposition to unaesthetic art flourishing in the world today.
Furthermore, the art movement aims to promote rare genuine egg tempera by means of new creative works of fine art, inspiring interest among the public in this extraordinary medium.
Widely practiced by fine art painters up to the Early Renaissance, genuine egg tempera, so unique for its hand preparation of paints, made from natural stones such a lapis lazuli and malachite, durability and luminosity of colors, which do not alter their brilliance over centuries of time, is one of the oldest painting mediums known to mankind, found in the art of cave paintings, the art of the Egyptians, and illuminated manuscripts of the Byzantine world.
Largely forgotten since the introduction of oil paint, genuine egg tempera has survived to our modern days of high technological innovation, mostly through the art of Russian and Greek icon writers.
A slow revival of this medium has taken shape in the years of late. However, a vast percentage of the population has insufficient knowledge of what genuine egg tempera truly is, including artists, art gallery experts, auction professionals, who lack masterly understanding of this medium.
Protecting treasured knowledge of genuine egg tempera passed down through the generations, multiplying artistic skills by way of experimentation and experience, and developing the rare medium with each and every new artwork, the artists of Egg Tempera Movement are dedicated to infusing new life into the lasting fine art tradition.
