The Gela Painter is an Athenian black-figure painter active during the late 6th and early 5th c. BCE, who sometimes applies black-figure to white-ground. The name derives from vases discovered at Gela in southern Sicily. Shapes are the lekythos, olpe, and oinochoe. Scenes are Dionysian, Herakles, the symposion, warriors, and athletes. Many vases have been discovered in the western Greek colonies.
