Description

The fragment has been attributed to one of the greatest Attic painters on ceramics, Euphronios, active in the last decades of the 6th century BC. and among the first to paint in the new red-figure technique, he is certainly among the most long-lived and talented potters and painters. He mainly painted large banquet vases, especially craters, with scenes from the Homeric myth or poems, but also inspired by the daily life of the Athenian elite. Well aware of the achievements of sculpture in the round, the painter masterfully tackles the rendering of human figures in torsion or foreshortening, with studied compositions and well-defined details. The fragment of the Archaeological Museum of Milan depicts the head of bearded Heracles with leontè on his head, through a firm and precise style, the skilful use of black and the detailed rendering of anatomical details and clothing, all characteristic elements of Euphronios.
