Richard V. Correll (1904-1990) was described as “one of the leading masters of printmaking in the West.” He earned a living as a commercial artist while producing a large body of fine art on his own time. Topics range from labor, social justice, civil rights, and anti-war themes, to work for the Great Depression-era Washington State WPA, and for the progressive Depression-era newspaper the Voice of Action.
