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:

"Hour of the Cowdust" Exhibition

I was contacted by Kiran who has let me know about an exhibition of Indian Landscapes by G D Paul Raj at his local museum

The exhibition shows a considerable number of G D Pal Raj's watercolours and runs from 8th September until 30th September 2017.  See the poster below for details.

I do not believe I have seen any of the works on the poster before, it is a shame but I am unable to attend the exhibition.  If anyone has been and took some photographs I would look to seem them, my contact email is on the top of my blog. Many thanks to Kiran for alerting me to the exhibition, I was away on vacation in Croatia at the time.
