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 - Beach Scene

I came across this painting for sale on Ebay back in September along with a second unsigned painting might could be by Paul Raj.  It is a beach scene, I have not come across one of these before but I have heard that he did some.  His first initial is behind the border, at least I think it is.  The pair of painting are smaller than normal measuring only 12 x 8.75 inches.

I think is is by Paul Raj as to the size it could be he has used some old paper.  As the second painting which I will add another day does have an outline of a temple on the back (unfinished) so may be did not want to waste the paper.  There are no dates or titles.  Hope you like it.  I think it cost me around £50.00 including postage.
