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 - Dancers

I think this is by G D Paulraj but due to the low quality of the photograph it is hard to read the signature.  It is a different kind of scene rather than being a landscape it is more a study of a group of dancers.

I do not think I have added this one before, I like it.  A sweet little girl is sitting on the edge of the pond which the ladies are dancing around.


  1. I like it very much. Very sweet painting..

  2. Thank you for sharing
    those amazing work
