The artist Kandinsky was born in Moscow, Russia in 1886. This date is surprising to most 7th graders since so many associate his non-objective style of painting to be modern looking. Also surprising, he studied law and economics. It wasn't until the age of 30 that he began to paint. He dedicated much of his time painting artworks that drew parallels between visual art and music.
