Admirer of Paul Raj Paintings

My photo
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:

G D Arul Raj - Gold Moher in the Evening Light

This is a painting by the brother of Paul Raj called 'Gold Moher' which is a bright Indian tree.  I understand that that Arul is the younger brother of Paul and was probably born on 
2 August 1925 in Kodiakanal, Southern India.

After the second World War he went to the USA and settled in California in Los Angeles and sold his paintings there.  I understand that he is called a Listed Artist.  I think he then died in 1972.  He studied like his older brother at the Madras School of Art.

I have  attached a photograph of the rear of the painting which shows the hand writing of Arul Raj with the name of the painting.  "Gold Moher in the Evening Light".
