Overview

The core of the collection of Greek vases at Harrow School is the gift of Sir John Gardner Wilkinson, a leading Egyptologist of the mid-nineteenth century whose wide range of interests is well demonstrated by his skill in collecting Greek vases, as well as his still influential books on Egypt. The collection is by no means an ordinary one, since it contains more than its share of Athenian masterpieces as well as a full range of wares from other parts of Greece and Italy. It includes the name vase of the Harrow Painter, an outstanding amphora by the Kleophrades Painter, and many hitherto unpublished pieces of particular merit.
