Raffaele Carelli (1795 Martina Franca - 1854 Naples) was the head of the well-known Italian family of painters, father of Achille, Gonsalvo, Gabrielle and Giuseppe Carelli. Primarily, he studied medicine, then chose the profession of an artist, and already at the age of 17 was a well-known portraitist in Bari. In 1815 he went to Naples, where he received a job at the studio of the restorer (and forger) Raffaele Ciappa. Thanks to a friendship with Genoese poet Giochino Ponta, he made acquaintances with family Beurghignon and the banker Gustave Meuricoffre, who became his sponsors. Soon enough Meuricoffre introduced R. Carelli to the high society of Naples.
In 1816-20 he worked as an assistant of Wilhelm Huber, in whose studio he met Achille Vianelli and Giacinto Gigante. His work in this studio was to paint staffages (for Huber's landscapes). For young Carelli this job carried the opportunity to be exposed to the newest developments in landscape and cityscape painting influenced by Jakob Philipp Hackert.
In 1826, at the intercession of Duca di Montesantangelo, he exhibited several landscapes that were then acquired by the court for Foresteria Collection. Between 1829-1831 he painted a series of landscapes "Viaggio Pittorico del Regno" (published by C. Bianchi). In 1830 he received a title of the Honorary Professor of the Institute di B A Napoli (Academy of Fine Arts). In 1833 he was awarded with exhibition's gold medal for "Cascata del Fibreno" (English: "Waterfall of Fibreno" - neighboring town of Isola del Liri!) and "Scoglio di Frisio". In 1834 Carelli accompanied as illustrator the Duke of Devonshire on the latter's tour of Sicily, following him then to the Near East. In 1835, in Real Museo Borbonico (Naples), he exhibited three paintings of Sicily and received a gold medal.
Carelli no longer exhibited his works from 1835. He founded his own private school of painting and became an art and antiques dealer. In 1839 he once again accompanied Duke of Devonshire on the latter's trip to Asia.
