The Mastos Painter belongs in the stylistic orbit of the Lysippides Painter, the artist who is believed to have executed the black-figure decoration on bilingual vases for which the Andokides Painter did the red-figure. Onetorides, the youth who is praised as fair on this vase, is known principally from works attributed to Exekias. The hydria, therefore, links several contemporary artistic strands.
