Part V of The Eye of the Painter: Ancient Greek Pottery Lecture Series: The Art of South Italian Vases

February 26, 2011 - 2:00pm

Speaker: Keely Heuer, Dietrich von Bothmer Fellow, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Using as a point of the departure the volute krater attributed to the Baltimore Painter on view at the Legion of Honor, this talk explores the unique imagery found on Apulian vase, particularly on those vases of monumental scale, which not only reflects their funerary use, but also provides clear evidence for frequent dramatic performances (both tragedies and comedies) in this region despite the lack of evidence for permanent theaters.
