According to Trendall and Cambitoglou, op. cit., p. 98ff., the Painter of Louvre MNB 1148 is a follower of the Varrese Painter, who "shows a high degree of individuality, especially in his drawing of faces and drapery...showing an original approach...as a painter of monumental vases" such as dinoi and loutrophoroi.
