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 - Oxen Bazar

It is getting hard to remember which paintings I have posted over the last 10 months, I do not think I have added this one before, but it is really good so no harm done if you have seen it before.
I think this is really super painting of what appears to be a huge cattle sale and the cows in the foreground are under the tree for shade.  Hope you like it, did any one look at the Thyaga raj at the Jon Berg Fine Arts site which showed the Gateway to India, I would be interested in anyones comments? Thanks Goldfinch
