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 - Bombay Bazaar

At first glance this is a slightly different painting by Paulraj as it does not have any carts, cows or banyans trees, I said different!
But it still looks like one of his paintings even with all those things missing, I like it.

G D Arulraj - Street with shrines

This painting is by G D Arulraj and is a street scene with a shrine and it is quite a colourful composition.
The intensity of the sunlight and shadows has been captured well.
