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 - Loading the hay carts

This photo of a Thyagaraj painting was sent to me by a lady who was recently given this painting in Australia.  It is from his series of agricultural paintings, it depicts two women passing large heavy bails of hay to the men who are on the top of the hay which has already been loaded.  Looks like heavy work.
The painting is unframed at present they always look far better once they have a nice frame.  Many thanks for sharing this painting.
