It is only quite recently that the artist traditionally known as Giampietrino, among the most faithful pupils of Leonardo da Vinci, has been identified as Giovanni Pietro Rizzoli. He is referred to as "Gioanpietro" in documents of Leonardo's Milanese workshop and reappears in various guises in the texts of several later writers, as one of the master's more famous disciples. He was clearly an accomplished painter of altarpieces, Madonna’s and mythological women. The offered lot clearly reflects the influence of Leonardo’s later style in pallet, shading and composition.
