He began exhibiting his work in Germany, including a show at the Hamburg Museum. In 1928 he emigrated to the United States, and spent the latter part of his life in Brewster, New York. During his long career he exhibited his work in the United States and abroad. His prints are in the collection of the New-York Historical Society and the Museum of the City of New York.
