Augustin Joseph Lesage (August 9, 1876 - February 21, 1954) was a French Spiritualist and painter who reported that his art was the product of mediumship. He notably only began painting at age thirty-five, and was known for his work on large canvas, using the space to produce highly elaborate and symmetrical designs; at the time of his death, he had produced over eight hundred known works.
