Also in 1909, he stayed for the first time in an artist colony in Fleury-en-Bière in the forest of Fontainebleau. Never one to sit still for long, in January 1910, he returns to Berlin, opened a studio and became a member of the Berlin Secession and contributed to the group’s magazine. In the fall, he is back in Paris, where he remained (with the exception of travel for exhibitions) until the spring of 1914.
