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 - Photograph of the Artist

I have come across a photograph of the G D Arul Raj himself I think it was taken in the USA at Laguna Beach in Los Angeles.
Also a painting of some sailing boats by Arul which I tried to purchase from Ebay a while ago but something went wrong with the transaction it is now for sail at a very high price of $3,900 in the USA. Ebay item number 3801 3440 9080 (December 2009) in case any one wants to but it.
