Euthymides (Greek vase painter, active ca. 515-500 BCE)

Note: Euthymides was a vase painter and potter working primarily in the red-figure technique in Athens from about 515 to 500 BCE. His signature is known from eight vases, on which he signed his name six times as painter and twice as potter. Euthymides was one of a group of Athenian vase painters who have been nicknamed the Pioneers. Working from about 520 to 500 BCE, the Pioneers were the first painters to explore the possibilities of the new red-figure technique. Like his colleagues, Euthymides was interested in showing the human body in a variety of poses. Unlike other painters in the group, however, he tended to decorate his vases with just a few large figures, rarely overlapping them. Euthymides usually signed his vases, "Euthymides drew [it], son of Polias." In ancient Greece when an artist included his father's name in his signature, as Euthymides did, it could mean that the father was also an artist. Euthymides' father may have been the sculptor Pollias, whose work in the late 6th century BCE paralleled the interests and innovations of the Pioneer group.
