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 - From The Fields

I have been alerted by an Ebay seller with the use name of "Objectquality' to the sale of a painting by G D Paulraj called "To the Fields".  It is a buy it now priced at $495 which is around £310 at the current exchange rate of $1.60 to the £1.00.  I have been given permission to add some photos to the blog in case are viewers are interested in buying the painting.
It is for sale in Los Angeles in the USA under Ebay item number 3305 7582 2201 you can also make an offer if you are interested.  There is a label on the reverse showing it was owned by a college in 31 May 1995, Westmont College.
It is slightly different to his normal works as it does not have any hay carts but instead the workers are carrying loads on their heads.
