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 Paulraj - Blustery Day

I came across this photo of a painting by G D Paulraj, I understand the owners were given it as a wedding present over 30 years ago and were looking for information on the artist.  I tried to contact them but did not get a reply, shame.
I am unsure what is going on in this painting the lady in the foreground is standing on some kind of platform and in the distance is another platform with a roof.  Anyone know what is going on here?


  1. The platform is called a 'machaan' ( cha as in charles) which is built to keep a watch over the field from wild animals and thieves!

  2. Ramesh thank you for the information of what is going in in this painting and the name of the platform.
