The Foundry Painter is an Athenian red-figure painter active ca. 480-470 BCE. The name derives from a cup (Berlin, Antikensammlung F2294; BAPD 204340) showing sculptors on the exterior and Hephaistos and Thetis on the interior (Arming of Achilles). The cup is the main shape, and other shapes are the oinochoe and skyphos. Subjects include the symposion, athletes, horsemen, centaurs, Theseus, and the Trojan War. Some findspots are Etruria (Cerveteri, Vulci, Tarquinia, Orvieto, Todi), Adria, sites in southern Italy, and Tanagra.
