In the 1920s, Boeckl was a member of the circle of friends around Adolf Loos, together with Karl Kraus, Arnold Schönberg and Oskar Kokoschka. He integrated into his painting the whole of European modernism and became a model and teacher for a whole range of Austrian artists, especially when he became a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna in 1935.

In 1956 Boeckl received the internationally acclaimed Guggenheim Prize, in 1958 he participated in the Brussels World’s Fair in the show “50 Years of Modern Art”.
