Giampietrino was one of the greatest of the Milanese followers of Leonardo da Vinci.

Giampietrino is recorded in Leonardo’s studio in the late 1490s and worked in Lombardy all his life. Giampietrino produced both semi-erotic female nudes masquerading as classical heroines and intensely religiose devotional works from small, domestic panels to large, multifigural altarpieces. He was not ‘scientific’ in the way his master was and his chief characteristic is a soft, direct soulfulness.
