    DescriptionThe potter and painter Myson founded the Mannerist workshop at the end of the sixth century BC. The Mannerists were his pupils and pupils of his pupils, and specialized in columnkraters, hydriai, and pelikai. The workshop was unusually long-lived and was active through the whole of the fifth century and the first decade of the fourth. The style of painting and the choice of some subjects are curiously old-fashioned. A number of pictures show rare themes such as the Death of Prokris, Odysseus and Nausicaa, and Orestes in Delphi. Other paintings give an unusual twist to well-known stories. The Mannerists were influenced by theatrical productions, extant wall paintings, and the works of other vase-painters. The workshop provides important clues for the chronology of Attic vase-painting, for example drawing reflecting Pheidias' Athena Parthenos, and Aeschylos' plays Sphinx, Eumenides, and Seven against Thebes.

    Review quote
    The author is very much to be congratulated on shedding so much light on material that might at first seem quite unpromising. Studies of this kind are invaluable in inching forward our understanding of the workings of the pottery industry in 5th-century Athens. Antiquity A perceptive and usefully European angle on the continuing largely British debate on the pros and cons of the work and legacy of Sir John Beazley ... thoughtful and logical presentation ... The illustrations are well chosen, elegant and practical ... those who do read it all will be richly rewarded. Antiquity
