Wide-rimmed bowl with Perseus and Andromeda
Probably "In Castel Durante" Painter Italian
At the center of this bowl, Perseus appears with the head of Medusa, whom he has killed. The hero reappears on the bowl's rim, arriving on a puff of cloud to free Andromeda from the sea monster Cetus, who holds her captive. The scenes themselves are discreet and sequential: in mythology separated by time, and on this piece set apart by a white border. The landscape, however, flows continuously from one image into the next.
