He exhibited in Paris at the Salon des Artistes Français from 1897, receiving a silver medal in 1922, at the Salon des Indépendants from 1905 and at the Salon d’Automne. In 2003 his work was featured in the thematic group exhibition Around Impressionism: Nineteen Painters from the School of Normandy ( Autour de l’Impressionnisme: Dix-Neuf Peintres de l’École Normande) at the Maison des Arts, Antony.
