The Pan Painter is an Athenian red-figure vase-painter active ca. 490/80-450 BCE and a member of the Mannerist Group. The name derives from a bell krater discovered in Cumae (Boston, Museum of Fine Arts 10.185; BAPD 206276 ) showing Pan and a shepherd on one side and the Death of Aktaion on the other. Other shapes are kraters of different types, the amphora in different forms, the pelike, stamnos, lebes gamikos, loutrophoros, hydria, lekythos, alabastron, skyphos, and cups. Scenes include Nike, Dionysos and followers, gods and goddesses, Herakles and Busiris, Eos and Kephalos, Achilles, warriors, revelers (“komasts”), hunting, fishing, and funerary scenes. Some findspots are Athens (Acropolis, Agora, Kerameikos), Etruria (Cerveteri, Vulci), and sites in southern Italy and Sicily.
