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 - Selling Vegetables

This is a painting by G D Thyagaraj of three ladies selling vegetables at the side of the road.  The colours appear a bit muted but this is due to it being under glass and there has been some reflection as a result.
The signature is visible on the painting.  I do not think I have added this one before.


  1. Beautiful painting! I too like to paint such subjects :) Wish you a very happy new year!

  2. Thanks Ramesh. Keep up your own good work. Happy New Year.

  3. Fine paintings and original.
