In 1923, Zygmund Schreter studies in Berlin with Martin Brandenbourg and Lovis Corinth at the free Academy of Levine Funke where he meets several artists that he will meet again in Montparnasse. During these years, Schreter earns his living above all with his violin and plays with the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra or at the Max Reinhart theatre. At the same time, he exhibits in 1927 some watercolours in Lodz.
In 1929, he takes part in Berlin in an exhibition organised by the famous graphic artist Kathe Kollwitz.
Schreter arrives in France in 1934,
Some of his works are signed Szreter or Zreter.
The post-war years are punctuated with many trips to Spain, Finland, Israel, Switzerland and to the United States.
