The final element in Sir John Beazley's classification was the identification of individual painters. He was able to assign to painters about half of the vases he knew, even if fragmentary or poor quality, and these were recorded in lists which were published from the 1920s until 1970, the year of his death. Since 1979 these lists have been kept up to date electronically.
