Driben married the artist, actress and poet Louise Kirby just before he began to work for Harrison.

During the war, his popular painting of American soldiers raising the flag at Iwo Jima sparked a considerable amount of media attention.

In his later years Peter Driben turned, like many of his colleagues, to portrait and fine-art work, including a portrait of Dwight Eisenhower, which were organised into successful exhibitions by Louise.
