He established a studio in New York and, for the next decade produced both satirical and landscape images. In 1941, he taught printmaking technique at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. In 1961, he became an Academician at the National Academy of Design. His work is held by many of the world's leading institutions. He died in New York City.
