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 - Feeding The Bulls

This is a painting by G D Paulraj which sold at auction in the USA on 4 December 2010 it sold for $325 around £217.  I think it is the best painting I have seen sell at an auction this year by Paulraj.
I now wish I have bid 0n this one I like it a lot.  A second painting by Paulraj sold at the same auction , I will post that in a few days time, but this one is still my favourite of the two.  Hope you like it.


  1. The a bit faded, one can notice the use of colors here. The shadow itself has so many colors combining so well. One of the very best.

  2. This is indeed an excellent painting by Paulraj!
    Thanks for sharing.
