01 JUNE 2017 / The New York Review of Books the Berlin Painter Exhibition at Princeton University

On May 24th, The New York Review of Books published a review of “The Berlin Painter and His World” Exhibition at the Princeton University Art Museum, supported exclusively by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

The review, titled “The Vitality of the Berlin Painter” was written by James Romm, Director of the Classical Studies Program at Bard College in New York. Romm comments on the rarity of a museum encompassing the career of a single Greek vase painter, and the mastery of the elusive artist. 

“…the show charts the development, over some four decades, of an artist whose name, nationality, and even gender remain unknown, but whose distinctive and confident illustration in the red-figure style stands out as clearly as any signature,” says Romm.

The exhibition is at the Princeton University Art Museum through June 11. It will then be on view at the Toledo Museum of Art from July 8 through October 1.
