Paestan Red-Figure Krater

An ancient Paestan Greek red-figure krater by the Asteas-Python workshop showing a seated nude male, his hair bound in a fillet on one side, and a seated female her chiton around her waist on the other side, with large palmettes under the handles, all painted over the glazed surface.

Asteas and Python were the two leading painters in Paestum from about 365 BC to 330 BC and their workshop dominated Paestan vase painting during this period. They each signed some vases, and more than 1000 vases have been attributed to the Asteas-Python workshop.

Cf. Metropolitan Museum of Art, inv. no. 1976.11.5 (attributed to Python).
