The Madrid Painter is an Athenian black-figure painter active in the last quarter of the 6th c. BCE. The name derives from a hydria in Madrid (Madrid, Archaeological Museum 10913; BAPD 301766) showing the Struggle for the Delphic Tripod. Shapes are the hydria, neck amphora, and column krater. Scenes include Ajax and Achilles, Dionysos, and Herakles. Findspots are Vulci and other sites in Etruria, Nola, Syracuse, and Athens.
