The Panther Painter was a vase painter of the Atticblack-figure style. He was probably active at the same time as the Nessos Painter, or shortly thereafter. Both shared a prediliction for interlace patterns. The Panther Painter’s vases have so far only been found in Attica, but outside Athens, at Vari. It is therefore assumed that he did not live and work in Athens, but only produced for a small local market in Attica. He mainly painted lekanes with animal friezes.
