Painter of the Fleischman Phlyax Cup
|Dates||active about 360 - 350 B.C.|
Working in one of the Greek colonies in Apulia in South Italy, the Painter of the Fleischman Phlyax Cup decorated vases in the red-figure technique in the period from about 360 to 350 B.C. As with most ancient artists, his real name is unknown, and he is identified only by the stylistic traits of his work, especially the distinctive way in which he drew the garments and the women's diadems and the pose of the kneeling figures. Scholars refer to the artist who decorated the three surviving vases with these stylistic similarities as the Painter of the Fleischman Phlyax Cup, because one cup was once in the private Fleischman collection.
