During the Spanish civil war López-Rey moved to Paris.

The Danish National Museum acquired several of his ceramic artworks. Due to the German invasion to Denmark, he traveled with his wife to Finland and from here to Mexico (1942). In this country, and according to the art critics “his painting is characterized by an imaginative sense closely aligned with reality, whether representing a Mexican landscape, a Parisian scene, a naked female or a religious theme; it has always a sense of tenderness reinforced with an ironical touch… where greens and ocres are emphasized”. He immigrated in 1945 to New York where he had his first individual exhibition in the Bonestell Gallery. In 1946 he exhibited again his works and the New Yorker art critics rewarded him with a prize of US$2,000 granted to the Paintings of the Year.
