Getty | Art Break: Getting to Know the Makers of an Ancient Greek Drinking Cup

March 25, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

A 2,500-year-old drinking cup in the Getty’s collection preserves signatures of both potter and painter – named Kleophrades and Douris. How can we learn more about them and others involved in the cup’s production? Join Getty antiquities curator David Saunders and Sanchita Balachandran, archaeological conservator at the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum, as they consider traditional art historical approaches, advanced imaging techniques, and technical analyses to better understand artisans of Athenian pottery.
