His painting is precise and detailed, carefully and smoothly executed and orientated on the late 18th century and classicism. He makes illustrations for the periodical, Tygodnik Ilustrowany and in 1879 he helps to create the “Album Jubileuszowy artystów polskich” for the writer Józef Ignacy Kraszewski.
