The Bothmer Gallery II, named for Dietrich von Bothmer, provides examples of Athenian vase painting between about 530 and 400 B.C., when the flexibility of the newly developed red-figure technique permitted artists to draw freely over the convex and concave surfaces of vases.
A high proportion of the vases were made for containing, pouring, and drinking wine. On view also are significant examples of painted marble and terracotta sculpture, as well as coins and gems.
