Spending over 4 years in Paris studying classic works at the Louvre, he developed a formidable technique, evident in his beautiful rendering of the light playing on surfaces. According to those who knew him, John Koch composed his persona as carefully as he arranged his still lifes and interiors. His wife, Dora Zaslavsky, was an esteemed piano coach, and together they created a private world, as Koch wrote, out of the substance of the city. Typified by his interest in the interaction between people and the space around them, as well as the interplay of music and art, Kochs work resisted the prevalent trend towards abstraction.

Instead it recorded members of John and Doras circle (artists, writers and musicians), who participated in the European-style salon as an oasis of high culture and refinement in New York City.
