Kantharos (Drinking Vessel) with Female Head


Description Provenance Credit
Description Vase painters in Apulia developed two major styles: the Plain style characterized by simple decoration and few figures, and the Ornate style, which featured multi-figure colorful scenes, lavish ornaments, and intricate floral compositions. A large female head is a typical decoration for drinking vessels like this one, small-scale vases, cups, and plates created in the Plain style.
Provenance Horia Puscasiu; Marilyn and Herber Scher, Pikesville, 1984, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 2003, by gift.
