The Goltyr Painter is a prominent member of the so-called Tyrrhenian Group active during the later second quarter of the sixth century B.C. It is noteworthy that animal and figural subjects are depicted on the same scale, a practice that changes with the following generation of artists who establish the primacy of the figure. Tyrrhenian painters favored ovoid neck-amphorae, the majority of which were exported to Etruria.
