Painter, born in England of an Italian father, the artist Gabriel Carelli (1821-1900) and an English mother. Following a private education in Berkshire in 1889 he studied art at the Académie Julian, Paris, under Bouguereau and Fleury. Throughout the rest of his life he travelled abroad frequently, visiting Italy, Spain and Palestine. The Carelli family were patronised by the Royal Family, both Queen Victoria and Queen Mary buying their paintings. Queen Victoria was pleasantly surprised to discover how reasonably priced their works were, Conrad only charged her a pound or two each for his studies of Aix-les-Bains. The artist exhibited three paintings at the Royal Academy, his first, a view of Cairo, was hung in 1897. Then, after a gap of more than forty years, two more were shown at the RA in 1941. He also showed at the RBA, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool and RI. He had a one-person show at Walker Gallery, London, and was represented in several exhibitions at Menton in the South of France. In 1935 he became a member of the British Watercolour Society and was also a member of the Langham Sketch Club.
