He moved to Paris shortly after completing his studies and began exhibiting his original lithographs in international exhibitions in Paris, Dijon, Basel, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Cracovie, Florence, Washington, D. C. and Tokyo. Alain Le Foll began teaching at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Decoratifs, Paris, in 1964 and remained there until his untimely death in 1981.
