One of the first personalities to be identified in Etruscan art, the Micali Painter (sixth century BC), is also one of the liveliest of ancient vase-painters, and the leading exponent of a black-figure style that owed more to native imagination than the influence of imported Athenian vases. He is named after Guiseppe Micali (1769-1844), who recognized the hoard of vases discussed in this book as being the work of one man. This book presents
the first full stylistic study of the painter, together with a catalogue of his surviving work (some two hundred pieces) and an account of his development and influence within the course of archaic
Etruscan painting. Much of the material is hitherto unpublished, and the illustrations have been chosen to furnish a full documentation of the Micali Painter's range and originality.
