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 - Planting Rice - Oil Painting

Today I am posting details of a Paulraj painting that is on Ebay at the moment.  It is an oil painting by Paul (these are far more rare than his water colours) the vendor "I Buy Art" has agreed for me to add a photo on the blog (many thanks).
It appears to be in a contemporary frame and it is quite a moody painting showing some women working in the paddy fields planting rice.  If you want a closer look search Ebay for Item number 250792228230, it is priced at $695.00 Us Dollars on a 'Buy It Now' basis which is around £430 UK pounds.  I have also added a copy of his signature in oil.
