His mirrors, figurines, lamp stands, urns, and candelabra established his reputation as a decorative artist. Of his statues and portraits, several are in New York City in the Vanderbilt collection, notably “Death and Resurrection” and “A Breton Girl.” His works in Finland include a “Mariatta,” in the Imperial Castle, and a “Head of Christ” in the National Museum at Helsinki. The marble group “Maternity” is in the Museum of Arras, and a bronze statuette, “Youth,” in the Berlin National Gallery.
