active about 1500 - 1550

Little is known about Giampietrino and the very use of this name is conjectural, it having been applied to a group of paintings as a result of its appearance in Leonardo's 'Codex Atlanticus' in a list of Leonardo's pupils.

Although there may be some doubt about their attribution the paintings ascribed to this artist do form a stylistically coherent whole. They reflect the influence of Marco d'Oggiono, Cesare da Sesto and above all Leonardo.
