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 - Cooking on the boat

I just purchased this nice water scene by Thyagaraj two weeks ago, it was selling on Ebay. Got it for a very reasonable price.
I will take some better photos when I remove it from the frame as the frame needs to be glued a little.  It has a sticker on the back saying it was framed in Park Street in Calcutta, where I lived between 1957 and 1974 (off and on). Hope you like it.
