He then accepted the post of Principal of the New England School of Design, Boston, remaining there from 1850 to 1856. He then resigned to complete his studies first in Paris and then in Antwerp at the Royal Academy. Albert Fitch Bellows was elected to the Royal Society of Painters in Belgium several years later. Upon his return to the United States he lived and worked mainly in Boston until the great fire of 1872, in which his studio and much of his work was destroyed.
During the last decade of his life, A. F. Bellows opened a very successful studio on Fourth Avenue in New York. It was at this time that he devoted much of his time to the original art of etching, becoming a member of the New York Etching Club, the Philadelphia Society of Etchers and the prestigious Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, London, England. Albert Fitch Bellows was elected an Associate of the National Academy of Design in 1859 and a full member in 1861.
