In the same year he went to Morocco, where he was a guest of General Chambrun. In the 1920’s he went on to exhibit more internationally in North and South America.

Many of his paintings were purchased by the King of Italy, the Gallery of Villa Torlonia, the Navigation General, from several private galleries, from the Khedive of Egypt, from the French Government, the Museum of Santiago,

In this work the viewer is placed directly in the stalls of the theatre, taking in the movement of the orchestra, the drama at the centre-stage, and the frisson of the swordfight in the upstage right, all under the backdrop of a clear crisp night sky.
