Between 1924 and 1940, Baer made his home in Paris while taking extended painting trips to Algeria, Spain, England, Belgium and Holland. In December of 1940, he left Paris for New York, and settled in Carmel, California. Martin Baer exhibited internationally with success including solo and group exhibitions at the Salon d'Automne and the Ecole-des-Beaux-Arts in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Palace of the Legion of Honor, the St. Louis Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art among others.
