He was awarded a silver medal at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition in 1876 for oil and watercolor paintings. In 1880 he was a charter member of the Royal Canadian Academy. In 1890 he left Canada and went to Switzerland to live and resided at Lausanne until his death in 1919. He was also a member of the Society of Painters and Sculptors in Switzerland.
