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 Thyagaraj - Market Stall

Today I am posting another painting by Thyagaraj of a Market stall scene.

It is quite a colourful painting with a great lattice work window in the background however, the cows necks might be slightly suspect.  But who am I to comment when I cannot paint!!


  1. Beautiful painting! The proportions of the cows necks may be not correct as you pointed out, but he has a good understanding of the techniques of watercolors and painting light and shades which make this painting stand out!

  2. To me also the proportion do not look right. But that cow may not be a perfect cow. It may be having some growth on its neck for all you know..
    A really beautiful work..
