The Bareiss Painter decorated black-figure vases in Athens in the late 500s B.C. He was probably part of a larger workshop of vase-painters known as the Medea Group. Scholars have attributed six vases to him: five amphorae and one kantharos. As with most ancient artists, the true name of the Bareiss Painter is unknown. He is identified only by the stylistic traits of his work, especially by the way he draws horses. Scholars named him for the Getty Museum's vase, which was once in the private collection of Molly and Walter Bareiss.
