A few years ago while trying to research Paul Raj I can across an obituary notice of a Mrs Pankajam Paulraj in the online edition of the Hindu. It says that she was the wife of the late G D Paulraj Artist and that she died at her home in Chennai on 23 June 2002.
This clearly states that she died after her husband, I do not know when Paul might have died and would be interested in information from anyone who might know or have a newspaper cutting with details. I do know that he was alive in 1979 as I have been given a newspaper article from that year. You can view the obituary at the following link. http://www.hindu.com/thehindu/2002/06/24/16hdline.htm
Earlier this year I came across a water colour signed by Pankajam and until that time I had not know that she was an artist in her own right. My wife loves this painting and has it hanging in the bedroom. I could not afford the postage of the painting framed from the USA to the UK so I had to get it shipped unframed. We have since had it framed on arrival in the UK. The style is quite different from that of her husbands, hope you like it. It anyone has any photos of other works by her I would love to see them. A copy of her painting follows along with a close up of her signature.
