Description: Railroaders is representative of much of the artwork produced by Richard Correll. He was a champion of America's working people. These railroad men leaving their shift are big and bold, proud of the work they do.

Correll's themes often reflected his social conscience and he was attracted by heroic acts committed by everyday people in the struggle to achieve respect, freedom, and human rights. He marched with César Chávez and the United Farm Workers on their historic journey from Delano to Sacramento, contributed to and mounted the inaugural exhibition for the S.F. Afro-American Historical and Cultural Society, and created countless posters, leaflets, signs, and exhibits to civil rights, Native American, senior, labor, environmental, and world peace groups.

Artist Richard V. Correll (1904-1990) was a master printmaker who worked with linoleum and woodblock prints, etchings, and lithographs. Correll is best known for his black and white woodblock prints featuring political and social concerns of his time. His works also include landscapes, agricultural life, and portraits. Correll was born in 1904, spending most of his youth in Oregon and California. A Seattle, Washington resident from 1934-1941, Correll was selected to participate in the Federal Art Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), part of the New Deal. He was also a founding member of the Washington Artists' Union. From 1941 to 1952, Correll lived in New York City with his family where he worked as a commercial artist. It was in 1952 that he relocated to San Francisco where he would remain for the rest of his life. A member of the Graphic Artists' Workshop and Printmaker's Gallery of San Francisco, Correll worked alongside other established and respected Bay Area artists, developing his ideals of peace and artistic style.
