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 - Temple Scene

This is a painting by G D Arulraj depicting a temple in the background with a pond or tank in the foreground.
There are two cows in the foreground under the shade of the tree almost in silhouette.  This might belong to his family in the USA.

G D Thyagaraj - Watercarriers in front of a temple

Today I am adding a painting by Thyagaraj, it shows a shows ladies collecting water from a river bank or a water tank next to a temple?  It think it has lost some colour in the photo, might be better in the real thing.

G D Paulraj - Covered Cart

This is a painting by G D Paulraj of a covered Cart one of his favourite themes.  It is a shame that it is only a small low resolution photo as it looks like a very nice painting.
