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 Arulraj - Cart Procession

Today I am adding a painting by G D Arulraj, I was contacted by Craig in the USA whos says he acquired it earlier this year from an estate sale.  The owner who was an artist themselves purchased it around 20 years ago in the USA.  I think this is a high quality painting by Arul and in some ways looks more like that of his brother Paul.  I think Craig has got himself a nice painting.
The sky looks very moody in the painting, I have also added a close up of the signature below.
Thank you Craig for letting me add the painting to the Blog.
