Scope note
Refers to a style of ancient Greek vase painting that was transitional between the Black-figure style and the Red-figure style. Characteristics include that some figures were painted in Black-figure style and others, often the female figures, were outlined, using the brush rather than engraving to delineate the forms. Around 530 BC some painters eliminated the black-figure technique from their work entirely, they outlined all figures, but they then painted the background black, thus moving to the Red-figure style.
