Fleury-Joseph Crépin (1875-1948) was initiated into the world of spiritualism in 1930. He painted scenes from temples. He was convinced the war would end when he finished painting no. 300.

Crépin completed and signed his 300th miraculous painting on VE Day.  His final painting was to be no. 345.

Several of his paintings are currently to be seen at Museum Gugging,  20kms from Vienna. There's a link in the post below.

This fascinating museum is generally open to the public one day a week - Wednesday from 10:00am to 5:00pm. During the course of the year there are special events, talks, and workshops on many weekends.
