In 1870, he came to the United States, sent by the French government for a study mission about "the different learning methodologies of design and how they are applied in arts and industry".

He did not paint much in US but back in France, some of his artworks are inspired by the American Revolutionary War.
One of his paintings, The Signing of the Declaration of Independence is in the Cabinet Room of the White House.
