The Flying-Angel Painter is an Athenian red-figure painter active ca. 480-470 BCE. The name derives from an amphora found in Capua (Boston, Museum of Fine Arts 98.882; BAPD 202711) showing a satyr supporting a child-satyr on his shoulders with outstretched arms (“flying-angel”). Shapes include the amphora (Type C), kraters, pelike, lekythos, and a Panathenaic amphora with revelers (“komasts”). Other subjects are athletes, the symposion, Dionysos and followers, warriors, and Herakles. Some findspots are Cerveteri, Chiusi, Gela, Athens (Acropolis, Agora), Rheneia (Delos), Cyrene, and Kerch.
