He is credited with painting the first purely abstract works. He studied law and economics at the University of Moscow and was offered a professorship (chair of Roman Law) at the University of Dorpat before he began painting studies at the age of 30. In 1896 Kandinsky settled in Munich; he returned to Moscow in 1914, and returned to Germany in 1921. There, he taught at the Bauhaus school of art and architecture from 1922 until the Nazis closed it in 1933. He then moved to France where he lived for the rest of his life, becoming a French citizen in 1939 and producing some of his most prominent art)
