In 1898, he participated in the exhibition of Fine Arts and Decorative Arts Tours and starts at Salon of French Artists . He exhibited regularly until 1913, especially with portraits, landscapes and floral paintings. It will be a few murals on orders, such as those made for the theater Chatellerault in 1899.
