Potworowski was Professor of Painting at the Bath Academy of Art, Corsham (1949-57), where he had considerable influence and came into contact with Lanyon, Wynter, Frost, Heath and others that were teaching there. Making his way to Cornwall, Potworowski took a studio at Sancreed near Penzance. The landscape here invigorated his work and he painted extensively in the Duchy. In 1956, Potworowski was elected to the Royal West of England Academy and in 1960 he won an award at the Venice Biennale. In the relative peace of the 1950s, Potworowski travelled much of Europe including in France, Spain and Italy,
