Hugo Boettinger belongs to the generation of Czech painting of the early 20th century. He studied at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague as well as the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in his art he most frequently focused on figural themes. He is one of the representatives of naturalistic academism. He was a friend of T. F. Šimon and a member of the Mánes Association of Fine Artists and the Hollar association.
