Kleophrades Painter

Kleophrades Painter

▪ Greek artist
flourished c. 505–c. 475 BC
 Attic (Greek pottery) vase painter, among the finest of the late Archaic period, son of the Amasis Potter and probably a student of the vase painter Euthymides. The Kleophrades Painter was the decorator of vessels made by the Kleophrades Potter.

      About 150 vessels and fragments have been attributed to the Kleophrades Painter. Most of these are in the red-figure (red-figure pottery) style (that is, red figures are painted on a black ground). Several black-figure (black-figure pottery) (black figures painted on a red ground) “Panathenaic” vessels (ceremonial vessels, used during the Panathenaic Festivals held once every four years on the Athenian Acropolis) have also been attributed to him. Some of the red-figure vase paintings frequently attributed to the Kleophrades Painter include a cup in Paris; an amphora, now at the Staatliche Antikensammlungen in Munich, with “Dionysus, Maenads and Satyrs”; a hydria (water jar) now in Naples, with the “Iliupersis” (“Sack of Troy”); two calyx kraters (chalice-bowls), one at Tarquinia (Italy), one at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, with “Youths Arming.”

      The Kleophrades Painter decorated large vessels in a great variety of shapes. The subjects he painted were among those most popular during his time: athletic scenes, mythological epics of Theseus, Heracles, and Dionysus. His work is praised for strength of design, pathos, and dramatic intensity.
