The Tarquinia Painter (fl. c. 470–460 BCE) was an ancient Attic vase painter working in red-figure technique during the early mid-5th century BCE. His artistic personality (for he never signed his work) has been extrapolated by John Beazley[1] from his type-piece, Tarquinia RC 1121, Museo Nazionale Tarquiniese, illustrated in Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum II, plate 22.1.
