Thomas Kinkade is one of the best-selling artists in modern history. It’s been estimated that you could find a Kinkade work in one out of every twenty American homes.

He was a master of composition—hailed as the “Painter of Light”—and Park West Gallery is proud to reveal our newly released Thomas Kinkade collection as part of our ongoing Winter Sale event.

This collection features over 40 works from Thomas Kinkade and Thomas Kinkade Studios, all beautifully embellished giclees representing some of Kinkade’s most iconic imagery. You can view the full collection here.

Over half of the collection is comprised of many of Kinkade’s best loved images. These graphic editions came to Park West directly from the Kinkade Company.

The Kinkade Company been archiving “International Proof” editions of Kinkade’s art on canvas for years in the hopes to release those canvas editions internationally. Following Kinkade’s sudden, unexpected passing in 2012, the company saw Park West as the ideal global art dealer to bring these limited editions to the world.

“Many of these editions on canvas were sold out 10 to 20 years ago,” says Park West Gallery Director David Gorman. “We were thrilled to acquire these international proofs because, in many cases, these are works that Kinkade collectors haven’t been able to get their hands on for the past decade.”

These editions show off Kinkade at his best, bringing to life his trademark bucolic gardens, cozy cottages, powerful seascapes, and scenes of small-town American life.

This collection also features some of Kinkade’s unforgettable depictions of classic Disney movies, including beloved films like Bambi, The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, and more. Kinkade often referred to his Disney works as “narrative panoramas,” meaning that they tell the story of an entire movie within one single image.

Additionally, Kinkade fans will be excited by the addition of brand-new works from the artists at Thomas Kinkade Studios in this collection.

Before his tragic death, Kinkade had already begun building a studio that would continue his life’s work for generations to come, similar to the studio created by one of his idols, Walt Disney.

He accomplished this during his lifetime by actively seeking out talented artists who he believed would be able to carry on his vision, training these artists to paint in his hallmark, Kinkadian style.

Years ago, Norman Rockwell had the foresight to allow his family to create limited-editions of his paintings as “estate releases.” Thomas Kinkade just took that concept to the next level.

With Thomas Kinkade Studios, this marks the first time in Park West’s 50-year history where one of our artists has formed his own atelier of studio painters to expand on his body of work after his passing.

In these new editions, a studio of incredibly talented artists, steeped in Kinkade’s creative excellence, has brought to life scenes from two of the biggest names in modern pop culture—Disney and DC Comics.

"Mulan - Blossoms of Love," Thomas Kinkade Studios

These new Disney works carry on the tradition of Kinkade’s long-time collaboration with Walt Disney Studios, capturing carefree moments between Mickey and Minnie Mouse as well as scenes from acclaimed movies like Mulan and Beauty and the Beast.

Kinkade Studios has also created a series of dynamic works based on the core trinity of DC Comics’ most famous superheroes: Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.

Each of these works is a collaborative effort—between those who worked directly with Kinkade and those inspired by his art—all released under the Kinkade Studios brand, which is why you’ll find the Kinkade Studios signature rather than the signature of any one artist.

When Walt Disney passed in 1966, thanks to his foresight, Disney Studios did not cease to exist. The studio he built went on to create some of the most thrillingly creative works of the past century. In a similar fashion, Thomas Kinkade Studios will continue to create fantastic works of art for decades to come.

If you’re a long-time Kinkade collector or if you’re just intrigued by Kinkade’s tradition of excellence, this sale is the perfect opportunity to bring home a piece of Thomas Kinkade’s remarkable artistic legacy.

    Never had a print of painting of any sort but once I saw Thomas Kinkade’s work I was “hooked” and have never regretted what I’ve spent. Thanks to a wonderful man’s ability to paint so life like! Lyn

    Sale?? Every time I see the word “sale” I see a price – except for Park West. How would we know that it’s a sale as we have no idea as to what your original price was since you never share that information.
