The Danaid Painter is the name given to a Greek vase painter who was active during the 4th century BC. He painted mainly mythological, Dionysiac and genre scenes. The Danaid Painter is named for the subject he painted on a hydria in the British Museum (inv. no. 1867,0508.1339) showing three of the fifty daughters of King Danaos (Danaids) filling water pitchers.

Formerly in a New Jersey private collection; previously in a Vienna private collection.
