Timon of Athens Characters

A Painter is a starving artist in need of patronage who, along with his fellow crawler the Poet, hopes to get money off Timon by flattering him. 

He cannot decide whether to be self-deprecating about his art or not, and is rather affected about his calling. He is also quite open about the financial realities of life and the need to sell oneself – at least to other artists. The moment he hears that the ruined Timon has found gold, he runs to try his old tricks and get some money off of him, hypocritically swearing that he has come to visit simply out of friendship – with unexpected results, though he does get some gold out of it.
