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 Arulraj- Indian Village

This is a painting on a Village scene in India  by G D Arulraj, I think I first say it for sale on Ebay.  I do not remember if it sold.
I think the colours have faded a bit as the signature which is normally in red paint looked a bit grey in a separate close up.  The shadows are good.


  1. I like the warm golden palette in this one, a little different from his usual! Thanks for sharing.
