Today is a watercolour by Arul Raj showing a man at dusk taking a few cows home for the night.
It is an intense painting with bright light from the setting sun.
Admirer of Paul Raj Paintings
- Gold Finch
- Paul was born in Kodaikanal on 22 September 1914 and died on 2 October 1979. G D Arulraj was born in 1925 and died in June 1972 while visiting India. Arul worked at Laguna Beach in the 60's and 1970's. G D Thyagaraj might have been born in 1922 and I am told that he probably died sometime before 1981. He moved to northern India as a young man. I lived in India as a child and spent a lot of time in Calcutta. My mother purchased several paintings directly from Paul Raj while living in Madras and this got me interested in his works. I then discovered he had two brothers Arul Raj and Thyaga Raj who were both fantastic artists. I could not find much information on the internet so decided to set up my own blog. Subsequently a Facebook tribute site has also been created to the memory of the three brothers. Contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

I have been quiet lazy for a few months and had not posted anything on my blog so I have made an effort today and found this great painting by G D Paulraj of a group of women who are separating the wheat from the chaff.
It is signed in the bottom right corner by G D Paulraj.

I have very kindly been sent a photo of this Paulraj painting it is owned by Ravi in Malaysia. It shows a busy scene of a group of women washing clothes in a river.
It is similar to some that we have seen before but a nice painting. Thanks Ravi.

I am not able to read the signature as the photo is not of a high enough quality but it seems more like the style of Thyagaraj by the way the tress have been painted.
It is a very typical subject for any of the three Raj brothers, the colours look pretty good as well not very faded.
