Coral Polge was born in London in 1924. Most mediums communicate with the spirit world through thought messages, but Coral combined her artistic talent and psychic gift into a technique that reached the spirit world through drawings
Coral began her journey as a psychic artist while meeting with a small group of individuals who were trying to improve their psychic talents. She worked with several spirit artists who helped her improve her skills until she became one of the most renown psychic artists of her time.
One of her guides was a spirit named Giovanni Masaccio who said he was from Italy. After some research Coral found a Tommaso (another version of Masaccio) from San Giovanni who lived in Italy in the early 1400s. Masaccio was one of several guides who returned over the years to help guide Coral’s hand. “In the early days,” she said. “there was a concentration on teaching me to use pastels, and coaching me in anatomy and the guides were endeavoring to balance three aspects—the artistic or material channel, the psychic, and the spiritual.”
Her most helpful spirit guide was a French pastel artist named Maurice de la Tour. He first appeared in the 1960s and called himself only Maurice. He didn’t help Coral at first, but was identified by other mediums as a Frenchman, dressed in 18th century clothing with lace ruffles, and wearing a wig. Coral managed to make a sketch of him, but she wouldn’t know who Maurice was until later.
During a reading, Maurice communicated with Coral’s husband, telling her husband more about his life and that he had been helping Coral with her artistry. Coral accidently came across a book with the self-portrait of a French artist. She discovered his name was Maurice de la Tour. When they found Maurice’s autobiography, many of the facts he had given her husband were confirmed.
Maurice was a stickler when it came to Coral’s work. In her book, Living Images, Coral said, “Even now, Maurice de la Tour shows a great sense of frustration when I am unable to produce the quality of line or colour he has in mind.”
