He participated in many Parisian Salons. He was considered an expert in subjects concerned with dreams. He published many studies which had dreams and the features of psychiatric patients as their topic.
In 1935-1936 he painted a large wall painting entitled Subjects Found in Dreams, which decorated the main room of the St. Anne’ s psychiatric clinic, where he worked. He also illustrated many collections of poetry.
His involvement with pathological illnesses led him more easily to surrealism which felt that the perception of patients with psychiatric diseases revealed hidden sides of human nature.
He participated in the “Marseilles Game” with the surrealist group in 1940. He also participated in the International Surrealist Exhibition in 1947. The first retrospective of his work was held in 2002 at the foundation where he worked.
