He began actively pursuing a career in painting and is principally known for his winter snow scenes. He was a member of the prestigious Salmagundi Club and exhibited in New York. According to Richard H. Love Gallery, Koeniger exhibited at the National Academy of Design (1929-1931) as well as in Boston at the Vose Gallery (1926).
