What An Egg! Easter Egg Art Edition

Egg – the symbol of life, the victory over death, new beginnings and recoveries. And one of those gracious subjects in art which seems to be an endless inspiration for the artists. If you don’t know what do with too many Easter eggs, have a look on our painterly suggestions.
