In 1957 he was represented at the exhibition The New York School: Second Generation at the Jewish Museum, New York.

He exhibited in Richard Bellamy's new Green Gallery, New York. In 1961 he taught painting at New Brunswick. He discovered the technique of using medical bandages as material for his art and used himself as a model for Man at a Table. From 1961 to 1964 he taught at Roosevelt Junior High School. In 1963 he received a Master of Fine Arts from Rutgers University and traveled in Europe. In the same year he exhibited at the Galerie Ileana Sonnabend. In 1968 he had his first one-man museum exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. In 1968 and 1969 he taught visual art and sculpture at Princeton University. His work tended increasingly towards to portrayal of autobiographical scenes. In 1970 he was awarded the degree of honorary Doctor at Rutgers University.
