Dimitrios Paleothodoros (University of Thessaly), “Ionian and other Anatolian Influences on Etruscan Black-Figure Vase-Painting”

Abstract: Although the local character of Etruscan black-figure vase painting was recognized as early as the 1830s, later scholarship was dominated by the Panionian paradigm. Until recently, Etruscan black-figure was regarded as a school of vase-painting initiated by migrants from East Greece, soon to lose its “Greek” character and become “barbarized”. New developments in the study of Etruscan black-figure have brought forth a partial revision of the previous paradigm. In particular, it has been proven that the founder of the Pontic workshop, which is the earliest school of Etruscan black-figure, was a painter who owed nothing to East Greek art (the so-called Eure Painter). In addition, it has been argued recently that certain groups of vases once thought to be the products of Ionian painters who migrated in Etruria (the Campana dinoi, the Northampton group) should rather be regarded as imports. Since these developments affect the very essence of the established paradigm, it is now time to reassess all the available evidence. This paper deals not only with style, ornament and vase-shapes, but also addresses the questions of iconographic influence, especially in matters of ritual and divine iconography. Thus, a more balanced view about the contribution of Anatolia to the development of Etruscan pictorial styles of the second half of the sixth century BCE is achieved.
