The motif of a rearing stallion is one of the most popular subjects of the 16th and 17th centuries. Probably influenced by Leonardo da Vinci's monumental horse sculptures, numerous sculptors and bronzers - F. Fanella, P. Tacca or B. Prieur - took up this theme. The bronze on offer shows great similarities with the most famous version by Giambologna, cast by A. Susini ca. 1600, the so-called "cavallino, che sta in su due piedi". The great success of such models was soon adopted and further developed, especially in Augsburg.
