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 - Pond

Another painting found by Kashinath, it shows a pond with two cows bathing.  It is a little unusual as the foreground has a very dark tree and you are looking through the shade towards the pond which is in the bright sunshine.
There is also a man with the cows maybe he is washing them down?  It is another nice painting.


  1. This in fact is a great painting. The sunlight is very good and the point of observation is excellent.

  2. Excellent. Good colours, water, light and shade. Thanks Goldfinch.
