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:

I am back - G D Arulraj - Violet Sunset

Just returned home after five weeks away looking after my daughter who has been in hospital in London.  Came across this while I was away it was for sale on Ebay in the USA, I do not think it sold for the asking price so it might be re-listed in due course.
It is by G D Arulraj and is one of his many sunset or is it sunrise paintings, this being a violet version rather than the common turquoise.
