During the First World War he was called up and served in the Austrian Army 1915–1918. After the war he worked in lithography and etching. Because of the post-War economic depression in Austria he moved to Munich (1919–21) and then to Berlin (1921–23). He returned to Vienna in 1924, and his interest turned almost exclusively to sculpture.
On 27 November 1930 he married the artist Bettina Bauer, who like him, was Jewish. After the Nazi Anschluss in March 1938 it was too dangerous for them to be in Austria. He stayed in London, where he was at the time; his wife joined him there in July 1938, bringing many of his works. He became a British citizen in 1947. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1962.
