Egg tempera paint is a permanent fast drying paint consisting of colored pigments mixed with a water soluble medium used for binding usually glutinous materials such as egg yolk. Early tempera paintings going back to the 1st century AD still exist today. It was the primary medium for painting until the 1500's when is went out of vogue because of the invention of oil paint. Tempera painting as a medium was one of the main media used for illuminated manuscripts in the Byzantine world and then Medieval / Early Renaissance Europe. Many famous Italian painters such as Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raphael as well as many earlier Icons used this type of paint. As we can see today, it is an excellent material for surviving throughout the centuries to today. Throughout history this type of paint has been "rediscovered" by many artists such as William Blake, the Nazarenes art movement, the Pre-Raphealites asd well as de Chirico, Otto Dix and Andrew Wyeth all used egg tempera painting. Of course 20th century Indian art such as the Bengal school and Ganesh Pyne have used this medium extensively.
