Terracotta lekythos (oil flask)

Attributed to the Painter of Athens 1934

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

Two women at a tomb

The woman at the left kneels and gesticulates in mourning. The economy and sureness of the drawing are as noteworthy as the fact that her sentiment is expressed by her pose, not by any facial expression. The figure on the right holds a basket with fillets.
