Apulian Black Glazed Hydria

Apulian Black Glazed Hydria

An ancient Apulian Greek black-glazed hydria, a water vessel, with a vertical handle at the neck and two small horizontal handles on the sides. An ivy wreath circles the neck and a wave pattern decorates the rim.

Apulia, Magna Graecia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 4th century BC.
Height: 14 1/4 in. (36.2 cm).
Intact.

The output and quality of the Greek colonial potters working in Apulia increased greatly following the Peloponnesian War when Attic exports fell off sharply. Apulian craftsmanship is an amalgamation of the Ionian (Athenian, Attic) conventions, and Doric (western colonial Greek) styles, with a noticeable native Italian aesthetic.

Cf. Rhode Island School of Design Museum, inv. no. 00.011; Metropolitan Museum of Art, inv. no. 00.10.
