Celebrated as being one of America’s most popular modern day artists, it’s little surprise to hear that an estimated 1 in 20 American households own a piece of art by the late, Thomas Kinkade. Much like, J.M.W Turner, Kinkade also characterized himself as a ‘painter of light’, as he soon became renowned for his picturesque paintings of gardens, rivers, streams and cottages. Paintings that many American’s could easily identify and warm towards.
Throughout his career, critics have always been quick to extinguish the work produced by Kinkade, but despite such antagonistic responses, he still managed to author over 120 art related books and earn over $53 million through sales.
Born and raised in California, Kinkade had a glowing passion for depicting Christian themes within his work. More specifically, his powerful, enchanting and atmospheric interpretation of Christmas has always been revered as some of his greatest.
