Achilles Painter, Warrior taking leave of his wife (white-ground lekythos), from Eretria, Greece, ca. 440 BCE.
White-ground painters applied the colors after firing because most colored glazes could not withstand the kiln’s heat. The Achilles Painter here displays mastery at drawing an eye in profile.
