The Matsch Painter is an Athenian red-figure painter active ca. 480-470 BCE. The name derives from the former collector of a pelike (Pennsylvania, Private Collection; BAPD 202568) showing a man with a staff and a woman with a basket. Other shapes are the neck amphora and column krater. Subjects include Herakles and Geras (“old age”), Dionysos and followers, and warriors. Findspots are Padula (southern Italy) and Cerveteri.
