Apulian Gnathia Ware Skyphos: Lynx

 

Apulian Gnathia Ware Skyphos: Lynx

An ancient Apulian Greek Gnathia Ware skyphos with large lateral handles and a small foot with reserve band, painted with a lynx emerging from scrolling foliage, the Sun above, with decorative bands in added white above and below; by the Painter of Lecce 1075.

Apulia, Magna Graecia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 350 - 300 BC.
Width: 6 1/2 in. (16.6 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.
