While in New York, he also painted murals in the Worker's Liberary (1938), was a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship (1940), and taught painting at Sarah Lawrence College in 1945. Upon his return to Mexico in 1946, he collaborated with the Taller de Gráfica Popular, and became one of its members in 1948. He made return trips to Bolivia in the 1940s and 1950s, travelling with a Taller de Gráfica Popular exhibition in 1953.
