Makron

Datesactive about 490 - 480 B.C.
RolesArtist, Painter
NationalityGreek (Attic)

A vase-painter in Athens from about 490 to 480 B.C., Makron worked exclusively in the red-figure technique. He specialized in the decoration of cups but occasionally worked with other types of vessels. Unlike many other vase-painters of this period, Makron does not seem to have worked with a variety of potters, moving from workshop to workshop. Instead, he appears to have had a steady collaboration with the potter Hieron. Most of Makron's vases depict scenes from daily life: revelry, athletics, or erotica.
