It was in 1923 that he received his first honour, after his painting Le Christ was awarded the silver medal and was subsequently purchased by the French State. Another painting won him a travelling grant from the state which enabled him to explore and study the wealth of art that Italy had to offer. Returning to France he had his first one man show and in 1925 was awarded the Prix National for his painting Le Peintre which was later exhibited at the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh. In 1928 his extraordinary painting Marche d’Assissi was awarded the Gold Medal at the Paris Salon and was the purchased by the City of Paris and it was from this point on that the critics were unanimous in acknowledging his talent. In 1930 the French State purchased one of his paintings for the Musee d’Art Modern and he was subsequently honoured by his country being made an officer of the Legion of Honor in 1956, having previously been named a Chevalier of the Legion in 1937.
