His figure and portrait paintings are in the collections of Stanford University, Princeton, University, the Metropolitan Museum, Library of Congress and the New York Public Library. He was a member of the California Society of Etchers and the Tiffany Foundation.

After moving to Tucson Ariz., Hutton married Janet Nelson and together they had two sons, Michael and Peter. Hutton continued painting, sculpting, etching and taught several classes at the University of Arizona. His life was cut short in Feb of 1954 in a household fall.
