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 - Street Scene

This is a photo of a Paulraj watercolour provided to me by Elisabeth from the USA who lived in India for many years when her father lived there.  It is one of his nice street scenes if just a little dark.  I tried to edit out the flash reflection in the centre of the photo.
My appreciation to Elisabeth for sharing this painting.  She asked if I had heard of the Indian author  R K Narayan I had not so I have just purchased a couple of his books off Ebay.  Being 'The Man-eater of Malgudi' and 'Tales from Magudi' to see what they are like.

  1. I loved this work. By the way RK Narayan's works are very good. One of his books was made into a TV series long time back called Malgudi days. I am sure you'll enjoy these books.
