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:

Photo of Arulraj and Paulraj

Today I am adding a film frame that I have captured from Arulraj's film which I think shows Arulraj drawing and his older brother PaurRaj watching and giving comment.  Hope you like it.


  1. I liked the photo a lot.. Its a great shot of the brothers..

  2. They are probably on the Ten Mile road north of Kodaikanal looking towards Berrijam. Beautiful country.
