In this brief essay it has been possible to mention only a selection of the broad range of subjects represented by Polygnotan painters and to introduce only a few of the individual painters in the Group. There are gifted painters among them, who show originality in style, in subject matter, and in their ability to convey emotional responses. As the defining stylistic presence in the Group, active with others from its beginning but continuing through the second of its three generations, and as the only member of the Group whose name is known from signatures, Polygnotos has been rightly given the role of eponymous hero.
