- Kleophon Painter
The Kleophon Painter is the name given to an anonymous Athenian vase painter in the
red figurestyle who flourished in the mid-to-late 5th century BCE. He is thus named because one of the works attributed to him bears an inscription in praise of a youth named Kleophon.
He appears to have been originally from the workshop of
Polygnotos, and in turn to have taught the so-called Dinos Painter. Three vases suggest a collaboration with the Achilles Painter.
A number of
black figureworks have also been attributed to him by some scholars.
