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 Thyagaraj - Carts with bare trees

Came across this painting by G D Thyagaraj a little while ago for sale in an auction.  Unfortunately I did not keep a record of where it was being sold or what price it went for.
Might be an early one as he is still struggling with the length of the cows necks! Still interesting all the same.


  1. This one does look quiet different. The greens of the trees have retained their color while other parts of the paintings have not done so well in that respect.

  2. I enjoyed your
    Work very much
    Good Creations
