Campanian vase painting is one of the five regional styles of South Italian Greek red-figure vase painting, the others being: Apulian, Paestan, Lucanian and Sicilian. The Campanian region around the Bay of Naples, produced red-figure vases in the 5th and 4th centuries BC. The fine light brown clay of Campania produced a distinctive look. Campanian potters preferred mostly smaller vessel types, but did produce larger vessels like bell kraters and bail-amphora. Subjects include youths, women, birds and animals, and often native Samnite warriors. At 4,000 known vases, the Campanian style is the second most common in the region after Apulian.

Formerly in the C. Tripp collection, Chicago; subsequently in the collection of Jerome Eisenberg, New York, acquired in 1988.
