  • AVI Web: https://www.avi.unibas.ch/DB/searchform.html?ID=5990
  • AVI Record Number: 5763a
  • CAVI Collection: New York, Private.(1).
  • CAVI Lemma: RF hydria. Niobid Painter. Second quarter fifth. 460-450.
  • CAVI Subject: Concert of Women: at left, a column and an open door; to its left a knuckle-bone bag; a woman to right showing an open book roll (shown in perspective) to...; the woman seated frontally on a two-stepped platform, who is playing the lyre while reading in the roll; beside her, an open chest, from which no doubt the roll had been taken; above her, a lyre hung up; at right a woman to left holding a lyre and chest.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: The book roll, seen from below, is not inscribed.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Kaufman-Samara lists as New York, Foundation of the Solow Art and Architecture. [This can hardly be quite right.]
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Lausanne, Private (Bérard). THE VASE IS NOT INSCRIBED. The scene has been interpreted as a Concert of Muses (Prange) or as a Concert in the House of a Rich Athenian Woman (Bérard). K.-S. thinks a poetess is giving a public performance (because of the bema), with domestic features added.
