Euphronios was a successful painter who established his workshop. The series of painters who worked for him can be traced for nearly thirty years. One of his earliest painters was also one of his finest, Onesimos. After the Persians sacked Athens in 480/479 BC, Euphronios re-established his workshop and trained young artists including the so-called Pistoxenos Painter.
