1910-again:

Hélène Smith (Catherine-Elise Müller), Martian Landscapes 1896

The medium Helene Smith (1861-1932) of Geneva, Switzerland was the subject of Dr.Theodore Fluornoy’s seminal book From India to Planet Mars. During the sessions with Flournoy, Helene spoke a Martian language and drew images of Martian life. André Breton and other Surrealists were impressed by her ability to “pour out messages from the depth of being” and cited her as an influence. More information here.

If anyone can share some other quality images of her drawings it would be much appreciated! They seem extremely hard to come by!
