Leagros Group (Attic vase painters, active ca. 525 to 500 BCE)

Note: The last major group of Athenian Black-figure painters of large vases, the Leagros group competed with the then-established Red-figure style by exploiting the Black-figure technique to its technical limits. The group is named after five hydriai with kalos inscriptions praising Leagros. The artists typically used shapes with broad surfaces that allowed large-scale compositions. There are over 400 vases attributed to them, around 200 large hydriai with flat shoulders, or neck amphorae, and various amphorae, kraters, and lekythoi. Like most contemporary artists, the Leagros group painters framed their compositions on large vases with patterned borders. They are distinctive in having abandoned the common animal frieze below the scenes on the body of hydriai and the ivy trails on the sides of the scenes, replacing them with palmettes framed in scrollwork or loops, a pattern established by the newer Red-figure style.
