Did you know?

The Shuvalov Painter is named after the former owner of an amphora now in the Hermitage.


The relatively large eyes and head of this seated woman are characteristic of figures painted by the Shuvalov Painter, a painter known to have painted numerous small vases during the mid- to late fifth century BC. Along with many mythological subjects, the Shuvalov Painter often showed women in domestic settings, as here; the box or chest she holds could be a bridal gift.
