Leagros Group Attic vase beats estimate at Christie’s

An Attic black vase by the Leagros Group led Christie’s much anticipated Antiquities sale on April 25.

Leagros Greek vase

The Leagros Group produced some of the finest Attic vases 

It achieved $271,500 against a $250,000 valuation.

The Leagros Group (525-500 BC) were vase painters from the Attic region of Greece who worked alongside one another.

They were among the last to paint in the black figure style.

Their output is highly prized. In all, around 400 vases are known to have survived.

The present lot is a particularly fine example, showing several major gods at rest.
