During this period, he made numerous trips all over Europe and regularly painted in Italy. He made several paintings of the South of France, all over Provence, and the Cote d'Azure. He painted Giverny and the Cathedrals of Rouen. In 1970, Anton made his way to Los Angeles, CA where he painted scenes of LA and San Diego Harbor, often resorting to working as an artist in the movie industry. His superb classical training led him to a contract with Eleanor Ettinger Studio in New York to work for Norman Rockwell transposing his original oils to lithographic plates. Anton's first major New York exhibition took place at Jasper Gallery on 57th Street in 1977. Shortly after the death of Rockwell, Anton returned to Los Angeles where he continued his prolific work on paintings which included family, as well as nostalgic reminiscences of Europe, especially Paris.
