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 - Ox Cart through the Banyan Trees

I have been sent this photo of a painting by Paul Raj by a lady whose parents bought in when they visited India in the 1950's.  It is one of the better quality paintings by Paul from his 'big tree' era.  I think they were in Delhi and they got it from an art gallery not from Paul Raj himself.
It is a very nice painting and I like it a lot, it is not dis-similar to a couple of the Paul Raj paintings I own myself.  Many thanks to the family for letting me add this to my blog.
