Pascal Forthuny (1872–1962) was a French art critic, clairvoyant medium and novelist.
He was born as Georges Léopold Cochet in Paris in 1872. Forthuny developed his alleged paranormal abilities of automatic writing, clairvoyance and psychometry in the 1920s after his son died in a plane crash.
He was tested by psychical researchers such as Eugéne Osty and Charles Richet and managed to convince them he had genuine paranormal powers. However, other researchers have suspected that Forthuny was fraudulent and had utilized methods of hot reading.
