Férat showed his work, with that of other Cubists, at the Salon des Indépendants until 1928 and at La Section dOr in 1925 - whose Europe-wide reputation furthered recognition of his work.

Until her death in 2001, Haba devoted all her energy to promoting Serge Férat's work, showing it across Europe and in the United States and Japan.
