Born and raised in southern New England, Richard Correale grew up surrounded by art. His father, Joseph Correale Jr., is a renowned watercolor artist in Rockport, Massachusetts.
As a young boy Correale was first introduced to the world of photography by his late grandfather, Joseph Correale Sr., who gave him his first camera, a Kodak Brownie.
Correale's early years of employment involved color separation for City Printing, one of the innovators of four-color printing. His interest and knowledge quickly grew into 39 years in the graphic arts.
As his career grew, so did Correale's passion for photography, which began as a hobby and has grown to his present status of professional photographer. In addition, Correale's imaging experience expanded into the newly evolving Giclee´ fine art reproduction field and he is now considered a master Giclee´ artisan. Currently, Correale has a permanent exhibit at the Shoreline Medical Center in Guilford, Connecticut.
Correale has been married for 30 years to his wife, Nadia, and they have been blessed with two daughters, Dr. Dana Correale and Tracy Correale.
A photographer and giclee printer by profession, making giclee reproductions for many well known artists on Cape Ann, MA including, Donald Mosher, John Terelak, Dorothy Ramsey, Corey Tevan, Ivan Kamalic, Fran Scully, Mary Douyard and others.
With 38 yrs. experience in color separation for printing pre-press, professional photography, and high end Photoshop retouching and color correction for the publishing industry, I feel I'm uniquely qualified to produce giclee reproductions of the highest fidelity and quality.
About the artist:
Realism in watercolors is Mr. Correale's forte´. He has a great love for the scenic flavor of the northeast, having been born and raised in New England. When he chooses a particular theme and transposes it to his paintings, he attempts to give the viewer something of the same emotional impact he has felt.
Mr. Correale's paintings are held in private collections around the United States, Europe and Japan. He is a member of the National Watercolor Society, the Kentucky Watercolor Society, the New England Watercolor Society, the Rockport Art Association and is a master artist at the Copley Society.
He has won many awards and has had numerous one-man shows in New York City. Before moving to Rockport, Massachusetts where he currently resides and paints, he was a well-known graphic designer throughout New York and Connecticut, his work appearing on the covers of publications ranging from telephone directories to national magazines.
With his wife, Rae, he founded the Correale Gallery in Rockport twelve years ago where he sells both original and limited-edition prints. One visiting the gallery can also select from a fine line of original art glass and pottery.
