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:

From India - G D Arulraj

Not long ago a member of Arul Raj's family posted a painting on the Facebook site that appears to show a work in progress.  This painting still belongs to his family and a copy of it appears in his publication "From India".
It was a great idea to show the various stages of a painting which was the whole purpose of the book by Walter Foster.
Thanks to Arul's daughter in the USA for sharing this painting.  I have just noticed that someone is selling a signed copy of Arul's book on Ebay today 4 June 2011 in the USA under the Buy-It -Now scheme for $50.
