This vase represents the latest phase of Lucanian vase production before its decline. The shape is much simplified in the articulation of the body and handles. The Primato Painter was the last significant Lucanian artist. He draws facilely, with more interest in the trumpet-shaped florals and other vegetal motifs than in the human figure.
