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 - Carts in Sunlight

I recently spotted a Paulraj painting for sale in the USA and it only sold for $150 who ever purchased this got a real bargain.
He has really captured the shade and sunlight in this painting which is one of his classic cart convoy scenes.  I like this a lot and wished I have put a bid in for it.


  1. Wow...This one is really brilliant and one of his best! Very atmospheric...I can feel the heat!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing...I love his work...wish I could own one of his paintings.

  3. Glad you like the painting I hope it gives you some inspiration for your own paintings, I do follow your own blog.
