His etchings and lithographs record his impressions of the cultures he visited. Handforth returned to the Pacific Northwest for a brief stay before once again setting out on a world wide journey. six of his years abroad were spent in China where he established a studio in Peking. Following a second discharge from the Army in 1943, Handforth resided in Washington State, New York City and Los Angeles, where he died in 1948.
