Luigi Boille

Biography

Luigi Boille (1926-2015) was an Italian artist who trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. After moving and settling in Paris, he became associated with the Informal Art movement, inspired by the writings of French critic Michel Tapié. In 1964, he represented Italy together with Capogrossi, Castellani and Fontana at the Guggenheim International Award in New York. Boille took part in the Quadriennale in Rome in 1965 and 2011, and had a solo presentation of paintings at the 33rd Venice Biennale of Art in 1966. His work has been the subject of rediscovery since the retrospective at the Villa Torlonia in Rome in 2019.
