Attic Red-Figure Skyphos: Flute Player and Youth

Greek


Of the some eighty vases assigned to the Shuvalov Painter (named after one vase in a Russian collection), this is the only skyphos, or drinking cup.  His figures are extremely delicate, with sheer drapery. He favored small shapes for pottery, and he has been called a miniaturist.
