Under the tutelage of his professors and mentors Aublet and Gerome, he quickly became very successful and was awarded a first prize. In addition to many portrait commissions, he won several awards in various Salons and Exhibitions, and was made a member of the London Royal Academy and a Chevalier de Legion d'Honneur. He took part in the Liege Exhibition of 1909 where he received a silver medal.
