His Western-style paintings were rendered with Japanese ink techniques. His love of cats comes through with the collotypes on handmade Arches paper, 1930, comprising his Book of Cats, which sold for $27,900 in DuMouchelles’ October 20 auction. The superb impressions of an extremely scarce set were won by a Japanese bidder. There were 18 of 20 works, each work is signed and dated in the plate, from the edition of 500, each with “Made in France” ink stamp in lower right margin.
