Group E (Greek vase painters, active ca. 560-540 BCE)

Note: The innovators of Group E, a workshop of potters and vase painters who created vases in the black-figure technique in Athens, created new vase shapes, changing the form of the amphora and producing larger vases than their predecessors. Before striking off on his own, the famous vase painter and potter Exekias worked with Group E for a time early in his career. Group E tended to paint a fairly narrow repertoire that included common mythological themes and chariots seen from a frontal view. As with most ancient artists, the true names of the artists who comprised Group E are unknown; they are identified only by the stylistic traits of their work. Scholars have named the group after its most famous member: the E stands for Exekias.
