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 - Under the Giant Tree

This painting shows a lady moving baskets under a giant tree, not sure what she has been doing but it is quite an interesting painting but fairly dark.  You can see the sun shining through the canopy of trees.  It is currently for a sale with a fine art dealer in the USA called VanderMolen Fine Art

No price is given so if anyone is interested you will have to approach the dealer directly.  He has it listed under Californian Artists, but it was Arul Raj and not Paul Raj who worked in the USA.


  1. Wow...this is really wonderful! A visual treat with the lights and darks. I love how the sun rays have been painted!
