He was associated with the Laren School. At the age of twenty-three, he decided to become an artist. He took drawing and painting courses in Munich and finished his training at the Académie Julian in Paris. He travelled a lot, to France, the United States and Japan, which won him an international reputation. He was a consultant on ‘Far Eastern Art’ for the Metropolitan Museum in New York and managed a collection of Chinese porcelain at the Louvre. He produced relatively few paintings because he worked slowly, with great attention to detail, achieving a tapestry-like effect.
