After returning to England he worked as a sculptor and made poster designs. He had success with a poster for the newspaper Népszava. He also designed costumes and stage sets for the Új Színház [New Theatre]. After the fall of the Hungarian Soviet Republic, he moved to Vienna where he published his Horthy-album.
