...The Antimenes Painter’s work comprised three phases. The first is characterized by frequent repetition of the same themes, with the influence of the Lysippides Painter evident in both subject-matter and composition. During the second, the Antimenes Painter led a workshop whose production included more unusual shapes such as dinoi, calyx kraters and psykters. The third phase represents the zenith of the painter’s career. Though it has yielded fewer vases, these are painted in meticulous detail. A few groups briefly carried on the Antimenes Painter’s style...

...the Antimenes painter and by Psiax , who may have been his teacher: the Rycroft painter was apparently a workshop colleague. Women are frequently depicted in scenes greatly animated by their gestures and poses: in an orchard, bathing in a grotto or fetching water at a fountain. Chariot scenes and depictions of Herakles and other heroes departing are also common, while his Herakles Fighting Alkyoneus and Aeneas Carrying his Father are among the earliest examples of these scenes. These works are related iconographically to the Andokides painter and...

...from the 6th century bc such themes became increasingly popular with vase painters. Many 6th-century bc vases show banquets and dancing, music and love-making. Sport was a popular subject: athletes are shown with their trainers and pairs of wrestlers and boxers confront one another. There are scenes of work from the world of trading and commerce, such as the workshops of bronzesmiths, potters, carpenters and cobblers; scenes of rural activity, such as the Antimenes painter ’s Olive Harvest ( c. 520 bc ; London , BM ; ) painted on a neck amphora;...

... (U. PA, Mus., 5399), show Horses Led by Youths in Thracian Dress . The stately chariot-harnessing scene on a hydria (destr.) was Psiax ’s monumental Black-figure masterpiece. A similar, but livelier, hydria scene ( Hartford , CT, Wadsworth Atheneum) recalls the Antimenes painter , whom J. D. Beazley termed ‘ Psiax ’s brother’. Psiax ’s paintings on both Red-figure and Black-figure small vases share the same imagery and delicate, sinuous, vivid draughtsmanship. He combined fine design with sensitivity to colour, as on the perfectly composed tondo...

...his Black-figure output recalls Psiax in motif and the Antimenes painter in style. Oltos employed Black-figure exclusively for scenes on eye-cup tondos, such as the Running Dionysos Carrying a Rhyton and Vine ( Rome, Vatican , Mus. Gregoriano Etrus. 498) or the Spear-bearing Trumpeters ( Rome, Vatican , Mus. Gregoriano Etrus., 46; Bryn Mawr Coll., PA, Riegal Mem. Mus.), using fine incision and substantial added red. Between the large eyes on the cups’ exteriors he painted Red-figure trumpeters, warriors, athletes, women, beasts, plants or inanimate...

...also left the largest known Black-figure cup ( London , BM, B 426). The drawing of the Lysippides Painter is looser and less precise than that of Exekias, but never is it slipshod. Contemporary with the Lysippides Painter is the Antimenes painter , who is called after a kalos name on a hydria in Leiden (Rijksmus. Oudhd., PC 63) that shows Youths in a Palaestra . His early work seems to recall that of Lydos, who may have been his teacher. The Antimenes Painter decorated many standard neck amphorae, but one of his favourite shapes was the hydria, which...
