Joseph Edward Southall was a British Arts and Crafts painter and a member of the Birmingham Group. They were one of the last outposts of Romanticism in the visual arts, and an important link between the last embers of the Pre-Raphaelites and the new Slade Symbolists. He 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.
