"View of the Oise Valley"

Oil on canvas measuring 65x54cm

He attended the workshops of French impressionist painters such as Camille Pissarro4, Henri-Jean Guillaume Martin or Claude Monet, and was influenced by Vincent van Gogh. Between 1907 and 1909 he resided in Italy, where he produced a series of seascapes.

In 1910, he moved to the Villa Rustique in Auvers-sur-Oise, a house-workshop that he would occupy until his death.

The Círculo de Bellas Artes de Caracas, created in 1912 to provide an alternative to the academic style of Venezuelan art schools, supported Boggio's work. In 1918/1919, Boggio, then over sixty years old, returned to Venezuela for an exhibition of his paintings at the Escuela de Musica of the University of Caracas. His stay, lasting a little less than a year, was the opportunity for young artists from Caracas such as Armando Reverón, Manuel Cabré, Brandt, Castillo and others to discover his impressionist paintings. Boggio guided them and helped them break free from traditional academic painting and understand European Impressionist tendencies. He not only encouraged them, but also explained to them the techniques of this style of painting and accompanied them on their journey of discovery.

Boggio died in France the following year.
