The Pan Painter was an ancient Greek vase-painter of the Attic red-figure style, active ca. 480 to 450 BC. A pupil of Myson, he stands the beginning of the Mannerists, though his drawing technique is considered the finest.[1] Sir John Beazley attributed over 150 vases to his hand. His name-vase is a bell krater in Boston depicting Pan pursuing a goatherd.[2]
