Thomas Kinkade (1958-2012)

Remembering "The Painter of Light"
Thomas Kinkade, famously known as "The Painter of Light," was America's most collected living artist until his untimely passing on April 6, 2012. He was 54.

Kinkade was once quoted saying that he had something in common with Walt Disney and Norman Rockwell: He wanted to make people happy. His paintings and prints adorn millions of homes across the world, and his devoted fans will remember him for the warmth and tranquility that his imagery brought into their lives.

The spirit of Kinkade's work has always brought such joy to Park West Gallery collectors and will continue to do so for many years to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with Thom’s family.
