In 1895 he left for Paris to study under Rodolphe Julian and Filippo Colarossi.

In 1898 he returned to St. Petersburg and participated in design of the famous Mir Iskusstva aka World of Art journal. His satirical drawings were published in a few satirical magazines. In addition to that Eugene Lanceray created paintings dedicated to the history of St. Petersburg and illustrated the story Hadji Murat by Leo Tolstoy.

From 1917 to 1933 Eugene Lanceray lived in Dagestan, and later in Tbilisi, where he worked as an artist in the Ethnography Museum, and then took part in ethnographic expeditions as an artist of the Archaeology Institute.

From 1934 his life and creativity was associated with Moscow. He made stage design for several plays, a few monumental paintings (the hall of the Bolshoi Theater, plafonds of the Moscow Hotel, etc.). 

However, Eugene Lanceray made it into history of art first of all as the master of refined Petersburg style with Art Nouveau elements, a book illustrator, a stage designer and one of the founders of the World of Art (Mir Iskusstva) famous association.
