Back in France, he participates for the first time in the Salon d'Automne in 1919 - "he brought back from Morocco expressive compositions, made in a sober way, of a beautiful outfit" notes Émile Sedeyn - and takes again the painting by receiving the advice of Jacques-Émile Blanche , developing his taste for portraiture and engaging with him a long and deep friendship: the Custodia Foundation keeps the letters written by Jacques-Émile Blanche to Jean de Gaigneron whose dates go from September 1915 in February 1942, and a picture of the portrait he made.
