Apulian Red-Figure Dish


Apulian Red-Figure Dish

An ancient Apulian Greek red-figure plate with a bearded male head in profile facing left with a garland in his hair in added white, a laurel wreath around the border.

Apulia, Magna Graecia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 4th century BC.
Diameter: 6 in. (15 cm).

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.

Formerly in the collection of Jerome Eisenberg, New York.
