Apulian red figured pelike attributed to the Underworld Painter, c. 340 B.C

The unusual size of this large pelike allowed the artist to display six figures on the face A. On the front a seated woman and a naked youth, surrounded by three women and a flying Eros. On the reverse, a seated woman and a youth; above, a flying Eros.
A similar piece in the Metropolitan Museum of New York is attributed to the Underworld Painter.
The Underworld Painter is the successor of the Darius Painter, in whose workshop he began his career and where he worked with other influential craftsmen.
Broken in large fragments

Private German collection H.B. Rheinland-Pfalz Acquired in the early 1990s from the Antikenkabinett
