Born in Stockholm the son of a sea captain, Boëthius studied at the Celeb Althins Art Academy from 1920 to 1921 followed by the National Art Academy in Stockholm from 1921 to 1923. He exhibited at the Swedish –French Art Gallery in Stockholm in the late 1920s and held solo exhibitions at the Galerie Moderne in Silkaborg, Denmark. Boëthius aﬃliated himself with the Smedsuddsnaive movements, which inspired a 12-year fascination with naïve art, particularly inspired by the work of Henri Rousseau. In the 1930s, Boëthius’s work entered a darker phase, characterized by urban angst ﬁlled images. He also showed in Gavle, Sweden and Ornskoldsvik during the 1940s. Boëthius’s work is represented in the Modern Museum, Gotenburg Museum, the Art Academy of Stockholm and the museums of Malmö and Ystad.
