In 1903 the writer returned to Moscow and started getting his works published. Three years later Maximilian Voloshin married the well-known artist M. Sabashnikova. 
The year 1907 saw the publication of his Cimmerian Twilight, which was followed with Voloshin’s work on various monographs protecting the art groups Bubnovy Valet (Jack of Diamonds) and Osliny Khvost (Donkey Tail).  In 1910 Maximilian Voloshin became an acknowledged expert in the field of literature and had his first collection Poems. 1900-1910 published. He wrote articles on culture, poems on the horrors of war, and painted.  During the Civil War the poet ran the risk of giving secret shelter to fugitives of both the sides.  After the October revolution Maximilian Voloshin was very much into painting in Crimea.  The paintings created in that period made the series Koktebel Suite. In 1924 he turned his house into the Creativity House, which he left to the Union of Writers. 
The writer and artist Maximilian Voloshin died in Koktebel on August 11, 1932 and was laid to rest there.
