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 - Country Road 2

This painting belongs to Janet who has said I can add it to the blog.  She noticed that it is very similar to one I own called 'County Road'.
Janet's Painting Country Road
I assume they were painted at a similar time using the same palette of colours.  To compare with the painting I own look in the labels for "Country Road".  Thanks Janet for sharing a very nice painting.  I will come back and add my painting below so they came be viewed side by side.

The following painting below is the painting I own called Country Road which was first posted on 2 December 2009.
My painting Country Road
Now you can see them both together and can see the similarities.  Mine had some damage to the central tree trunk, it had been attacked by some kind of fungal growth, it shows a bit yellow in the photo.
