The Bothmer Gallery I, named for Dietrich von Bothmer, former chairman of the Department of Greek and Roman Art, focuses on the art of Athens, particularly on painted vases in the black-figure technique, which flourished from about 600 to 530 B.C.
The vases were all made for actual use and they are decorated with mythological scenes as well as reflections of Athenian life. Contemporary works in marble, bronze, and silver present many of the same themes as on the pottery.
