From 1919 the artist traveled across China, Japan (even had his personal exhibition in Tokyo), Ceylon, India, Greece, Italy, and Constantinople. In 1922 he moved to Holland and settled in Hague. The same year he displayed his Constantinople landscapes in the Autumn Salon and held his personal exhibition in R. Duncan’s Gallery in Paris. Leonid Sologub participated in the Big Exhibition of Russian Art in Belgrade in 1930 and the Russian Art Exhibition in La Renaissance Gallery in Paris in 1932.
