The transition from black-figure to red-figure among Athenian artists was neither rapid nor orderly. While the Göttingen Painter used the new technique for the main subjects, he decorated the neck of the obverse in the outmoded combination of silhouette on white-ground. On the lip, he reverted to a practice favored during the second quarter of the sixth century B.C. by black-figure painters.
