Inscription Painter (Greek vase painter, active 570-ca. 530 BCE in Rhegion, Italy)

Note: The Inscription Painter was the founder and leading painter of a school of vase-painting known as Chalkidian. Working in the black-figure technique, the Inscription Painter decorated mostly large vases: amphorai, hydriai, and kraters. He was very careful to coordinate the shape of the vase with its decoration. His style is marked by the use of large areas of added red and white, little inner detail on the figures, and a balance of light and dark areas. The Inscription Painter worked in Rhegion, a Greek colony in South Italy, but it is not clear where he received his training. His work has a strong connection to Athenian style but also shows elements more characteristic of the vases of Corinth and East Greece. As with most Greek vase-painters, the real name of the Inscription Painter is unknown, but he is named after a striking characteristic: the inscriptions that he used to label figures.
