This is a painting by G D Arulraj of two young women waking down a road carrying wicker baskets. It has nice bright colours and the usual large tree in the foreground.
Admirer of Paul Raj Paintings
- Gold Finch
- 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: firstname.lastname@example.org

This is a nice painting of a shrine under a Banyan tree by G D Paulraj, in the background you can see some people working in the fields.
It is owned by the same lady as the last Paul raj I posted, she went to school in Kodaikanal many years ago and her parents purchased the painting then.
