Arriving in Moscow in 1904, he lived in the house psychiatrist F.A.Usoltseva, where he met with the patient Mikhail Vrubel , who became his first mentor in the arts.

Over time, central to his painting and drawing received the gospel theme (Visitation and other drawings of the late 1910s - in the Tretyakov Gallery).

In 1919 he created - the plan "monumental propaganda" - his masterpiece, a monument to VI Surikov Moscow's Red Square as a figure of apocalyptic angel with a sword and a cup in his hand. Parts of the huge figure had already been implemented in the material (sheet metal, technology knockout), but never collected, then stored in the museum's storerooms in Zagorsk, where he disappeared, most likely deposited by metal (still include several preparatory drawings and plaster sketch in the archives of the Ministry of Culture in Sergiev Posad).
