In 1940 his painting entitled "Market" won a bronze medal at the New York World's Fair. He studied at the Art Students' League in New York in 1941, where his second book, Oeuvres Nouvelles, was published a year later. In 1943 Savain was studying fresco technique with Jean Charlot, tempera painting with Stephane Hisch and wood sculpture with John Taylor Arms.
