The Archaic style existed from around 700 to 480 BC. Mythology and life became important subjects.

Some artists signed their work. Periods and Styles Black-Figure

The Black-figure style really did not dominate until the 6th century BC. Artists painted black images silhouetted against the natural red clay background. Details were inserted by etching the black figures. White or purple paint could then be added.

Periods and Styles Red-Figure The red-figure style appeared between 530-525 BC.

It was achieved by simply reversing the manner of black figure painting. The red figures are reserved and the background is painted. This is more difficult but it allowed the design to

be seen better at a distance and it leaves the contour of the pot more visible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlxsE_KOvbE&feature=player_detailpage
