In 1944, when Provence was liberated, the Fidlers returned to Mougins, where he and Edith turned out utilitarian objects like vases, ashtrays, dishes and candle-holders. A daughter, Catherine, was born in 1947, but the couple divorced in 1950 and Fidler moved to Paris where he would work for the next couple of years. In 1952 Fidler resettled in Vallauris where he has regular shows of his work. In those days, he became friends with Picasso and Jacqueline Roque. In 1956 he married his second wife, Edith Ramos, from the Azores, his student in ceramics and then co-worker. The couple had a daughter, Nathalie, in 1956. Fidler returned again to Roussillon in 1969, while travelling frequently across Europe and the Americas. He remained there painting and producing ceramic pieces in Roussillon-en-Provence until his death in 1990.
