Atalanta Vase by Douris

Douris was a famous and prolific vase painter in ancient Greece.  I saw this vase in a tour in the Cleveland Museum of Art.  The tour guide explained that art historians love Douris because he signed his works and he labeled the major figures.  No guesswork!

This is Atalanta.  I mentioned her in a previous post of mine, and I was thinking about this sculpture as I did.  Unfortunately, I had no pictures.  I thought about pilfering the photo on the Cleveland Museum of Art website, but I was disappointed to discover that their picture depicted Eros, and not Atalanta.  So I went back to the museum and took a photograph myself.
