Douris

 

(also Duris), an ancient Greek Attic vase painter of the first third of the fifth century B.C., a representative of the “severe style.” About 280 of his vases have been preserved, of which 39 bear his signature. They depict genre scenes and scenes from mythology, elegantly and clearly drawn, with elongated figures. These include the amphora The Athlete and Nike (the Hermitage, Leningrad); the kylikes Eos Em-bracing Her Dead Son Memnon (the Louvre, Paris), In School (Classical Collection, Berlin), and Neoptolemus and Odysseus (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna); and the psykter (cooler) Drunken Sileni (the British Museum, London).
