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 - Cart on stormy day

It is getting hard to remember which paintings I have added to the blog in the past.  I do not think I have added this one before.  It is the painting that appeared in the newspaper article back in the 1970's.
You can really feel the cold wet rain, the road looks muddy rather than dusty as in other paintings by Paulraj.


  1. Yes, I can almost feel the storm and the rain.. Amazing piece of art.

  2. Paulraj was a specialist in painting trees! This one is painted so nicely. Thanks for sharing!
