I tracked this painting on Ebay for a few months and it was not selling. The vendor was slowly reducing the price and when it came down to what I thought was a realistic price I made him and offer, which he accepted. The painting is by G D Paulraj and depicts a Delhi Street Scene.
It included a frame but was shipped from California without the glass in case it broke in transit. I did have to pay a small amount of UK tax on arrival not just on the purchase price of $160 but also the potage costs of $55, this seemed a bit unfair of the UK tax authorities. I decided to replace the mount and add new non-relective glass and it looks very presentable now. Finally I gave it to my sister at the end of April 2011 as a birthday present. The painting has faded as when I removed the old mount you could see the stronger blue of the sky under the edge of the mount where it had not faded. Hope you like this one. This was framed by a firm called the 'Paris Picture House' at 30 Ewing Road Chowk, Nila Gumbad, Lahore.
