PAINTING INFO (from wassilykandinsky.net)
The “Black and Violet” painting ranges among the artist’s most important works resulting from a wonderful combination of circumstances, which can occur only a few times in a lifetime, even with creative artists of such calibre. Those components were the time, place and environment. The subject matter of the Black and Violet painting is determined by two large dominating forms of corresponding colors and their accompanying forms. There are the two sailboats plowing through the calm water on the right, and the sinister black cloud of the approaching storm on the left (or the darkening world during a solar eclipse?), which has already drawn up with the third one whose mast is topped with the Russian flag. Such an interpretation may well be read as an illustrated history of the Kandinskys’ departure from Russia.

ARTIST INFO (from wikipedia)
Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky (1866 – 1944) was a painter and theorist. Kandinsky is generally credited as one of the pioneers of abstraction in western art, possibly after Hilma af Klint. Born in Moscow, he spent his childhood in Odessa, Russia (now in Ukraine), where he graduated at Grekov Odessa Art school. He enrolled at the University of Mow, studying law and economics. Successful in his profession—he was offered a professorship (chair of Roman Law) at the University of Dorpat (today Tartu, Estonia)—Kandinsky began painting studies (life-drawing, sketching and anatomy) at the age of 30.
In 1896, Kandinsky settled in Munich, studying first at Anton Ažbe’s private school and then at the Academy of Fine Arts. He returned to Moscow in 1914, after the outbreak of World War I. Following the Russian Revolution, Kandinsky “became an insider in the cultural administration of Anatoly Lunacharsky” and helped establish the Museum of the Culture of Painting. However, by then “his spiritual outlook… was foreign to the argumentative materialism of Soviet society”, and opportunities beckoned in Germany, to which he returned in 1920. 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. He died in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1944, three days prior to his 78th birthday.
