In 1902 he married the daughter of Surikov — Olga. In 1903 daughter Natalia was born to them, in 1905 — son Mikhail. Konchalovsky exposed his works at the 12th exhibition of Moscow Association of Artists in the Historical Museum. In 1907 he was conferred the title of artist for the painting Fishermen dragging the fishing nets. Konchalovsky became acquainted with I. I. Mashkov.

In 1912–1913 Konchalovsky participated in public debates Modern Art in the Polytechnical Museum, organized by the artists of the group Bubnovy Valet in order to explain principles of their art. In 1912 he designed the opera The Merchant Kalashnikov by A. G. Rubinstein for the S. I. Zimin’s theatre. At the beginning of the First World War, Konchalovsky was called up for military service as officer-artilleryman. In 1915 he was contused, and evacuated for treatment to the home front (demobilized in 1918). In 1915 he took part in the Exhibition of artworks of left tendencies in the Art Bureau of N. E. Dobychina in Petrograd. In 1916 the artist left the group Bubnovy Valet, and became a member of the group Mir Iskusstva and permanent exhibitor of the exhibitions of the group (till 1922). After revolution, Konchalovsky was elected (together with Lentulov and P. V. Kuznetsov) head of painting studio at the Second State Free Art Studios (1918–1921). His students were A. A. Labas, P. V. Williams and others. Konchalovsky also taught at the Higher State Artistic and Technical Workshops (VKhUTEMAS, 1926–1927) and the Higher Art Technical Institute (VKhUTEIN, 1927–1929). Konchalovsky exposed his works at the 5th State art exhibition in the Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow (1919), the First Russian Art exhibition in the Van Diemen gallery in Berlin (1922), the Exhibition of Russian Art in the Grand Central Palace in New York (1924), Venice Biennale (1924) and many others. In 1922 the first personal exhibition of Konchalovsky was held in the State Tretyakov Gallery. The first monograph about the artist Life of Konchalovsky written by P. P. Muratov was published in 1923. In 1924–1925 Konchalovsky with his family made a trip to Italy and France, where the second personal exhibition of the master was organized. He took part in the International Exhibition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts in Paris. In 1926 Konchalovsky was conferred the title of the Honoured Art Worker of RSFSR (Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic). He became a member and participant of the exhibitions of the society Bytie (“Being”) and the Association of the artists of Revolutionary Russia (AKhRR).

During the Great Patriotic War the artist lived in Moscow. In 1942 he was awarded the Stalin prize for long-term creative activity. In 1946 he was conferred the title of the People’s Artist of USSR.

After the War, several personal exhibitions of Konchalovsky were held in the State Maly Theatre in Moscow (1944), in the Central House of Art Workers (TsDRI, 1945), in the USSR Academy of Arts (1951). Memorial exhibitions of the artist were organized in 1956 in Moscow and in Leningrad. Pyotr Konchalovsky was one of the most significant masters of the first half of the 20th century in Russian (Soviet) art, which left large art heritage. His art biography could be divided into two periods. The first period (1910s) was associated with the group Bubnovy Valet (“Jack of Diamonds”), when the artist was one of the most consistent representatives of so called Moscow Sezannism (together with Mashkov). Konchalovsky’s manner of painting of that period was close to analytic cubism and fauvism. The second period (1920s–1950s) was characterized by realism style, which fit in with socialist realism. Due to this, art of Konchalovsky had great impact both on the next generations of socialist realism artists, and on the representatives of the second avant-garde wave of 1960s–1970s. Works by Pyotr Konchalovsky are in many museum collections in Russia, including the State Tretyakov Gallery, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the State Russian Museum and others.
