He worked with Lamaire on decorating the Paris town hall. Decoration in the "Théâtre Français". After his return to Brussels in 1889 he collaborated with the architects Saintenoy and Chambon. Posters for the International Exhibitions in 1897 and 1905, and advertising posters, including one for the photography studio of his brother-in-law Paul Boyer (see that name), designed in 1898 but probably never released. He used some of his negatives as models for his compositions. Women were his favourite theme. He left about 800 negatives, most of them female nudes taken for the main part at the turn of the century. This collection was acquired by the Musée Fortuny [I].
