The Washing Painter appears at his best on large vases. The charming depiction here shows Eros squatting on the ground to help a seated lady with her particularly elaborate sandals. The protagonists are usually identified as Helen flanked by her brothers, the Dioskouroi, Kastor and Polydeukes (Latin: Castor and Pollux).
