Who painted Captain Daniel Gregg's portrait in The Ghost and Mrs Muir?

Answer -- If you are looking for an answer from the movie or the TV show, there isn't one. It was never stated. According to the book, Daniel Gregg said that the painting was done by a man who paid for his sea passage that way -- and that the painter was also a bigamist! No name was ever given. If you are asking what person (alive) painted the portrait for the movie, I am clueless, but if you are asking who painted the portrait for the TV show, I don't know the name of the artist, but he retained ownership of the painting. When the series was cancelled after two years, the artist offered to sell it to the TV ghost, Edward Mulhare for some very large sum -- like $30.000. Mulhare declined. The painting then went up for auction at Sotheby's Auction house and was sold to a private buyer. Its whereabouts today in 2008 are unknown. The name of the artist who painted the sea captain was John George Vogel. He was an English portrait painter. The reason I know is because he also worked on another portrait entitled, "The Lady" which won first international prize. His show was in the Francis Taylor Gallery (owned by Elizabeth Taylor's father) in Beverly Hills. My mother was walking through his Gallery one day and was approached by Mr. Vogel to paint her portrait. She "sat" for the painting for a year which lends to it's extremely lifelike quality. I know about this artist because the portrait is of my Mother. I have photos to lend provenance, as well, but the painting now hangs in my home. Hey! Your story is cool! I would LOVE to see a photo of the portrait he did of your mother. (I would also LOVE to know what happened to the portrait on the tv show...

What is the story of the painting of peace?

To the best of my recolection the story went somthing like this: In the medieval times there was a king that wanted a painting in his room portrait representation of peace. He wanted to glance at it in bad times to become peacefully inside his soul so he declared a contest by decree to all paint artists in his kingdom to make a painting that resembled peace and the winner would have a good reward. All artists turned their work for the king to examine. The king saw a painting of a lake and children calmly wetting their feet in the lake. The next was that of a sea with no waves and a fisherman calmly sleeping in his boat. The next painting enraged the king. It was that of a storm. The king had thought someone was making fun at his authority and he was made to be brought forward before the king. It was an old man and the king asked him if he was making fun of him. He wanted paintings of peace and you bring a painting of a storm. The old man looked at the king in the eye and told him to look carefully in the painting. The king did so and he understood for there was a nest in the rocks of a cliff where the storm was passing through with a bird hugging the newly born. Indeed that was peace and the king declared this painting the winner by decree.
