Johann Leopold Axtmann (Fulnek/Moravia 1700–1748 Prague) A bay at the imperial stud, performing a Levade, signed bottom left: Johan Leopold Axman f., oil on canvas, 54 x 64 cm, framed The Andalusian stallion is shown performing a Levade, with a park landscape in the background. The wall is decorated with two reliefs, a Roman emperor on the left and a Turkish sultan on the right. This may be an iconographic allusion to the epic conflict between the Habsburg monarchy and the Ottoman empire, but at the same time gives a hint regarding the patron who probably commissioned this painting. Johann Leopold Axtmann was the most important student of the equestrian painter Johann Georg von Hamilton. In later years, he served with Count Franz Joseph Czernin von Chudenitz.
