Lot Essay

Flourishing between 525-480 B.C., the Micali Painter takes his name from the archaeologist Giuseppe Micali (1769-1844), who was the first to publish a group of the painter's vases in 1832. His workshop was most likely at Vulci, since a large number of his vases have been found there. He was the most prolific of all Etruscan black-figure vase painters with a lively and flamboyant style.
