In these years he taught in preparation for admission to architecture in their domicilio-estudio during the winter and in the summer moved to Galicia, where he painted many landscapes. The Civil War surprised him in Madrid; He moved with his family to Valencia, where he continued as teaching until, at the end of the war, it returned to its habitual residence.
