Column Krater with Standing Figures


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This krater (a vase for mixing water with wine) by the Walters Painter depicts a woman holding a spindle. A bearded man faces her, and a youth stands behind her with his right hand extended. The artist's drawing is known for stiff drapery folds, stylized hands, and prominent chins. The frieze showing a bull between two lions on the neck of the vase is rare on red-figure column kraters.
