Leningrad Painter (en)


The Leningrad Painter is an Athenian red-figure painter active ca. 470-450 BCE and a member of the Mannerist Group. The name derives from an amphora (Type B) discovered in south Russia (St. Petersburg, State Hermitage Museum B2228; BAPD 206561) showing a musician (kitharode) with listeners. Shapes are kraters, the pelike, the amphora in different forms, and hydria. Scenes include Dionysos and followers, worship of Dionysos, a satyr-play, the symposion, revelers (“komasts”), musicians, athletes, warriors, Herakles, centaurs, and Helios. A rare scene of vases being decorated is shown on a hydria from Ruvo (Vicenza, Banca Intesa 2; BAPD 206564). Some findspots are Bologna, Etruria (Vulci, Cerveteri), sites in southern Italy and Sicily, Corinth, the Athenian Agora, Rheneia (Delos), Camiros (Rhodes), Al Mina, Aspendos (Turkey), and Naukratis.
