Meleager Painter (Attic vase painter, active 420-ca. 380 BCE)

Note: The Meleager Painter decorated pottery in the red-figure technique in Athens from 420 to 390 BCE. As with most vase painters, his real name is unknown and he is identified only by the stylistic traits of his work. He takes his name from his frequent portrayal of scenes of Meleager and Atalanta among groups of hunters. He was also fond of Dionysiac scenes. The Meleager Painter decorated a variety of shapes, especially large kraters. His work is marked by sloppy drawing and poorly proportioned bodies. His fondness for depicting lavish textiles led him to portray many figures in Eastern dress.
