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:

The Adyar Club - Madras by G D Paulraj

I was recently contacted by a lady whose used to live in Madras and her parents were given a Christmas card in 1960 of the Adyar Club which later became the Madras Club in the mid 1960s.  It was painted by G D Paulraj and made into a print to be used on a Christmas card.  Thanks to Fran for sharing this with me.  She also sent me a photo of the Club taken in the late 1950s or early 1960s.
