Cimon of Cleonae was an to the front painter of ancient Greece. He was said to have introduced great improvements in drawing. He represented figures, according to Pliny, “out of the straight”, and he developed ways of representing faces looking back, up, or down; he after that made the joints of the body clear, emphasized veins, worked out folds and doublings in garments (according to Pliny). Pliny also said Cimon of Cleonae’s attention to detail and accuracy to cartoon was in view of that great, that he was famously dexterous to dispense gone what had always been the universal custom of affixing the proclaim of generals to their portraits, since they were appropriately readily recognizable. All these improvements may be traced in the drawing of to the front Greek red-figured vases.
There is some uncertainty on whether Cimon of Cleonae lived in the 8th century BC or the 6th century BC.
