Terracotta lekythos (oil flask)

Attributed to the Bosanquet Painter

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 159

Woman and youth at tomb

Thanks to his distinctively clean and careful style, the Bosanquet Painter's tomb scenes appear objective and without sentiment. The offerings on the monument include a fillet (band), wreaths, and lekythoi. The woman at left holds an oinochoe (jug) and a phiale (libation bowl) to pour an offering.
