Boeckl, Herbert#

b. Klagenfurt (Carinthia), June 3, 1894, d. Vienna, Jan. 20, 1966, painter, self-taught, after 1935 taught at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, teacher of major Austrian painters. In his early work developed an independent and strongly expressive style by applying paint thickly; in his middle period he characteristically gave different colours specific functions in his dealings with figurative themes and landscapes. B.'s painting after 1945 was an autonomous answer to international abstract painting; in this later phase the results of B.'s long-standing interest in Cezanne's work also became obvious. Austrian State Prize 1934, Austrian Decoration for Science and Art 1964.
