The Swing Painter is an Athenian black-figure painter active ca. 540-520 BCE. The name derives from an amphora (Boston, Museum of Fine Arts 98.918; BAPD 301521) showing a woman on a swing. Shapes are different amphora types, including the Panathenaic amphora. Scenes include both myth and everyday life: Herakles, Gigantomachy, centaurs, Amazons, Dionysos, warriors, riders, athletes, and revelers ("komasts"). Many vases have been found in Etruria, as well as Greece, Sicily, Cyrene, and Miletos.
