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 Thyagaraj - Cattle in the Shade

Today I am adding a painting by G D Thyagaraj which has been found by Kashinath on his travels.  The central tree of huge proportions and has lots and lots of cows under the shade.
I like the colours on this painting as well. Hope you like it as well.


  1. Very bright and cheerful colours here!

  2. I have a painting of the same artist.
    My parents taught at Kodaikanal international school in the 60's. I like the big tree in this

  3. Hello GM any chance of taking a photograph of your painting and sending me a copy by email so I can add it to the blog? My email address is shown at the end of the text about the Raj brothers shown at the top of the blog. Did you ever live in India yourself?Goldfinch
