Thomas Kinkade, landscape painter, dies at 54

4 posts in this topic

A painter who claimed to be the most collected living artist in the US has died at the age of 54.

Thomas Kinkade, who was best known for his paintings of idyllic landscapes, churches and cottages, died at his home in the Los Gatos area of San Francisco Bay, California on Friday.

Kinkade's sentimental works were said to fetch around $100m (£63m) a year in the US but were not popular with the art establishment.

He died of natural causes.

Kinkade's paintings generally depict tranquil scenes, such as country garderns and churches, while many featured images from passages of the Bible.

Wow he was only 54 :(

I love his paintings, I've got two small prints of his in my living room.

Very sad. RIP

R.I.P. He made the kind of paintings that I admired on OTHER people's walls.

I always enjoyed the feeling his art stirred. He was my favorite Christmas artist and will be missed. RIP

Edit: sorry for misspelling his name - it's Kinkade
