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:

Chogan Gate, Bundi, Rajasthan

A few weeks ago I posted a painting by G D Thyagaraj of a gate to a city and I wondered where it was.  I also mentioned this on the Raj Facebook page and a kind gentleman has indentified the place as the Chogan Gate, Bundi, Rajasthan.  I have attached a photo of the gate.
I have also attached the painting by Thyaga for comparison as well.

It certainly looks like the same place to me, I find it great when you can identify a place like this.  Hope you like it.
