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 chickens

Watercolour by G D Paulraj of a lady sitting outside of her house, it looks like she might be feeding her chickens.
Quite a lot of shade in this painting but a nice composition all the same.


  1. very gr8 work. very down to earth. feels like being there. must have been wonderful trip for d artist.

  2. A beautiful rustic scene! I have often thought how his compositions are mostly centered around trees. He had quite a way painting them :)

  3. You are correct Ramesh, not many of his paintings do not feature a tree. A painting of a group of dancers has just been added to the Facebook site this week, no trees in that one.
