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 - Temple and Market

Recently sold on the internet for £72.00 very reasonable and quite a nice painting with a little foxing.  Shows a temple in the background and a busy market in the street outside by Thyagaraj.
It is a fairly dark moody painting not sure if this was the original intention or if some colours have faded.

P.S. I have just noticed that I have added this painting previously back in June 2012, it must have been lying low and has re-emerged.
