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 - Village fair Rajasthan

Today I am adding a G D PaurRaj painting called Village Fair Rajasthan I was given a photograph by my friend Kashinath who is a keen follower of Paulraj and a very talented artist in his own right.
I like this painting a lot it is full of fun and action and looks like the fair is really busy with a lady cooking a meal in the foreground.  I am adding a web link to Kashinath's own site where he has listed several of his own paintings, please do take a look I am sure you will appreciate his works.

G D Arul Raj - Collecting Water

Painting by G D Arul Raj showing two women collecting water from a stream.  I do not think this is one of his best, rather simple painting, it does not have any magic, but all the same interesting.

The painting sold during 2009 on Ebay and it was in California, which is where Arul was painting in the 1970's.
