Milanese School. Active first half of sixteenth century. Attempts to explain this name as a reference to Giovanni Pedrino or to Gian Pietro Rizzo have not reached a definite conclusion. The paintings which have been grouped together as probably by Giampietrino are strongly Leonardesque and are so close in style to those of Marco d'Oggiono as to lead to great uncertainty of attribution.
