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 Paul Raj - The Bazaar

This painting by G D Paul Raj sold at auction a few years ago in Florida USA.  The photo is a bit grainy as it is only a low quality one.
It is not dissimilar to one I own of a market scene so could be from the same time and place.  The stall holder if the foreground is busy cooking something in a large pan.


  1. Lovely painting by Paulraj! The colors and the light which was his specialty is amazing!
