(b Valduggia, nr. Varallo, c.1470/80; d Milan, 31 Jan. 1546). Italian painter and sculptor, active over a wide area of Lombardy and his native Piedmont. His early paintings were strongly influenced by Leonardo and his Milanese followers, and throughout his life he remained eclectic, absorbing into his highly charged, emotional style elements from Pordenone and Lotto and also, for example, from the engravings of Dürer.
