After the war in 1948 he moved to Paris, where he continued to work in advertising, alongside his painting. He exhibited paintings in Germany at Galerie Faust, Altona Gallery and Gallery 42. In France he exhibited at least once a year in the 1960's, mainly in Paris, but also in Auvergne, Marseille and Lille.
