A masterpiece of potting and painting: this is the Attic red-figured calyx krater that the
Metropolitan Museum has recently acquired. Made about 515 BC, it is signed by the painter Euphronios and by the potter Euxitheos. Surpassing in beauty and excellence any vase in the Museum's large collection, it ranks in importance with the acknowledged masterpieces of Greek art.
