In the same year Drevin joined the Latvian art society Group of Expressionists.  In 1920 Drevin married the painter N. A. Udaltsova, in 1921 son Andrey was born to him. In 1920 Drevin was invited as a professor to lecture at the Higher State Artistic and Technical Workshops (VKhUTEMAS); he taught there during 10 years till the close of the institute. In 1921 he took part in the exhibition of the group Mir Iskusstva (“World of Art”). Drevin collaborated with the Institute of Art Culture (Inkhuk) and the State Academy of Artistic Sciences (GAKhN) in Moscow. In 1922 Drevin’s paintings were exposed at the First Russian Art Exhibition in the Van Diemen Gallery in Berlin.  In summer 1923 Drevin lived and worked in the village Sokolniki, near Savelovskaya railroad; there he painted a series of landscapes.

In 1928 joint exhibition of works of Drevin and Udaltsova was held in the State Russian Museum in Leningrad. In 1929–1932 Drevin visited Altai and East Kazakhstan. Paintings from the Altai series were exposed at the exhibition of the group Trinadtsat (“Thirteen”) in 1931 and provoked negative press comments.

In 1991 joint exhibition of Drevin’s and Udaltsova’s works was held in the halls of the Union of artists of USSR.  Alexander Drevin was one of the leaders of Russian avant-garde of 1910s–1920s. His early works were painted in impressionistic style. His works were characterized by freshness of perception of nature; pastel colors with tints of green, reddish, blue and pink. In works of War period (a series Refugees), brown and grey shades of color were dominant.  In late 1910s — early 1920s Drevin painted not only in figurative style, but in abstract style, which was close to rayonism. The painter was interested in combination of colors, its saturation and texture.  In mid 1920s Drevin returned to figurative art. The main part of his late works consisted of landscapes painted after his numerous journeys to Altai, Ural and Armenia. The painter tried to reconsider the landscape, to create abstract image of the nature.  Drevin was a master of drawing. His graphic works, mostly drawings from life in watercolor, pen or pencil, were estimated not less than his paintings.  Works by Alexander Drevin are in many museum and private collections, including the State Tretyakov Gallery, the State Russian Museum, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki (Greece), the State Art Museum in Riga and others.
