From 1846 to 1852, he was enrolled at the School of Fine Arts in Warsaw, and continued auditing classes there until 1854. Initially, he painted portraits, mostly of the Polish nobility, then took interest in genre and historical scenes. He also created some church icons.
In 1863, after the start of the January Uprising, he became part of the Great Emigration and moved to Paris, taking French citizenship. His most popular works there were miniatures, largely consisting of costume scenes from the 16th and 17th centuries; especially scenes from the court of King Henry II.
