Kandinsky initially trained as a lawyer and economist. In 1896 he decided to devote himself to art. From 1910 he became well known for his theoretical writings and as a pioneer of abstract art. In the preceding period he made small figurative paintings such as this historical scene with knights and churchgoers.
