Kandinsky has rendered this horse and rider at full gallop with the most minimal of means: just a few well placed lines and patches of colour. The painting dates from 1911, Kandinsky's turning point between realism and abstraction. He attained a synthesis of emotion and intellect through his free use of form, line and colour. He is one of the founders of abstract art.
