Eretria Painter (Attic vase painter; active ca. 440-410 BCE)

Note: Working in Athens, the Eretria Painter decorated vases in the red-figure technique from around 440 to 410 BCE. Over half of the almost 150 vases that scholars attribute to him are cups, but his finest work is on small pots such as oinochoai and lekythoi. The Eretria Painter decorated numerous vases with conventional mythological and athletic scenes, but he also painted more innovative imagery that foreshadowed later major trends. These less common motifs included bridal imagery, personifications, and scenes of women. As with most ancient artists, the actual name of the Eretria Painter is unknown; he is identified only by the stylistic traits of his work. He takes his name from a vase found at the site of Eretria, now in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
