(b ?Luino, Lake Maggiore, ?c.1480; d ?Lugano, 1532). Milanese painter, one of the most notable of Leonardo's followers in Lombardy. Little is known of his life (estimates of his birthdate have ranged from 1460 to 1490), but his large output indicates that he must have enjoyed a successful career (he was unusual among Leonardo's followers in that he painted numerous frescos as well as easel pictures).
