"Painter of Light" Thomas Kincade dies at 54
CBS ^ | 4/7/2012

Posted on 04/07/2012 7:39:53 AM PDT by KansasGirl

(CBS/AP) One of the most successful artists of all time, prolific painter Thomas Kinkade - the self-described "Painter of Light" - died Friday at the age of 54.

A spokesperson for the Kinkade family said the artist died at home in Los Gatos, Calif., apparently of natural causes.

Kinkade's paintings were anything but controversial, depicting scenes of a light-filled America with a heavy emphasis on home, hearth and church. His sentimental scenes of country gardens and pastoral landscapes in dewy morning light were beloved by many but criticized by the art establishment.

The painter once said that he had something in common with Walt Disney and Norman Rockwell: He wanted to make people happy.

Those light-infused renderings are often prominently displayed in buildings, malls, and on products — generally depicting tranquil scenes with lush landscaping and streams running nearby. Many contain images from Bible passages.

"I'm a warrior for light," Kinkade, a self-described devout Christian, told the San Jose Mercury News in 2002, a reference to the medieval practice of using light to symbolize the divine. "With whatever talent and resources I have, I'm trying to bring light to penetrate the darkness many people feel."

And he had a large following: Kinkade's paintings and spin-off products were said to fetch some $100 million a year in sales, and to be in 10 million homes in the United States.

How do you die at home at age 54?

Heart attack comes to mind. Happened to my father at age 56. Happened to my neighbor at age 39. Happened to by best freind at 50.

His early stuff (I have an example over my mantle) was great; later on, he had so-called artists copy his paintings, sometimes adding different details. That stuff was pure schlock.

Ditter, if you sign up on photobucket and upload a pic from your computer with their green upload button, under the pic you upload it says “HTML link.” You copy that and drop it into your FR post and preview it. That is it.

Whenever light penetrates darkness and speaks to the human heart, we may know its Source.

Perhaps an imperfect seeker of light now has found that which he sought and that which he tried to share with other seekers.

Is that not enough?

Man's definition of "art" may not matter much, after all.

I have some pictures that I would like to highlight with light. But I would like to light the picture from behind with the light - maybe an LED light - set in a box frame.

I understand there is a type of photo print that allows backlit lighting. On the internet I have seen photo lightboxes that light up the whole picture, but I would like the backlight to just highlight a certain part of the picture - like a star in the sky for example.

Do you have any advice or experience with backlit photography? thanks for replying

Yeah, not a fan of Zylla, either. I see him hanging up in our local DQ. :D Nothing against him. Think his stuff is "cute."

Warhol and Picasso

Warhol is overrated. I never understood the appeal. As for Picasso. I get it, but not my flavor. I guess I like classic artwork like Michelangelo, Donatello, Botacelli, Raphael (And NO, those aren't the ninja turtles!), Rubens, and oh so much more...

But I digress. Kinkade, R.I.P.

About 20 years ago, the WSJ had a story about Chinese mass production of original works via an assembly line of artists. One group would do the skies, another the foregrounds, etc.

Kitsch: artistic vulgarity; sentimentality, tastelessness, or ostentation in any of the arts (Encarta Dictionary definition)

I've never particularly liked Kinkade's work. I've spent the past 23 years living among and with people who earn 100 percent of their income as artists (painters and designers) in the free-market system -- in other words, these artists are not making a living from government grants, but from free people who like their work enough to pay hard-earned money for it.

Few of my professional artist acquaintances like Kinkade's work, either, BUT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM understands that Kinkade had a helluva lot more than simply "a knack for handling light." As for considering his work "vulgar," a person who would call it such is either an extraordinarily brilliantly skilled Michaelangelo/DaVinci in one, OR an art snob who couldn't paint his way out of a paper bag.

There's art, and there's bullsh*t art. Here's a simple test: look at "piece" and ask yourself: given the materials and time, could you reasonably reproduce it in a day, a week, or even a year? If the answer is yes, then it's bullsh*t art that, while it may be attractive, is at best "sentimental art." Andy Warhol, and much of the "modern art" of the '60s and '70s, come to mind. Audacity, not skill, was the active ingredient in THAT "art."

Hinckley Buzzard, unless you are a professional artist (and you may be, for all I know), in 50 years, given the paint and the canvas, you couldn't reproduce, let alone create out of white canvas, a single one of Kinkade's works, and neither could I.

I am very sad to hear of Kinkade's passing. He was a gift from God.

They are feel good, tranquil paintings that cause me to slow down ...

I LOVE YOUR POST!! You are a SMART person when it comes to art. The art you buy will be valued a HELL OF A LOT MORE 100 years from now than probably a lot of the "art" as defined by snooty critics of Kinkade.

And another thing: your art is HEALTHY art. Studies have shown that abstract "modern" art where the canvas depicts nothing recognizable to the brain, is BAD for healing, and people in hospitals heal much better with things like landscapes. It's why you don't see a bunch of abstract art in the latest, greatest cancer-curing hospitals.

I repeat: you are a SMART art consumer.

Dittos on Warhol, about the same on Picasso. I live a couple of miles from the Warhol museum but have never been nor I plan on going.

I guess it’s like music. I like and often prefer classical and opera but this morning “It’s April Again” - from ZsaZsa, Percy Faith and others- has been playing here. Then when I play guitar it’s mostly bluegrass, old country western or Irish/celtic songs.

We are complicated creations, LOL!

I recall something like that ~ have seen other bits about that practice on various cable shows also.

They aren't really "originals" but rather copies done in oil paints. There's still a lot of work goes into any oil painting.

Back on KIncaid, he figured out how to make money ~ and his stuff is friendly.

Thomas Kincade was born in Sacramento, California and many of his paintings were renditions of goldrush-era homes and towns in the Sierra foothills. He also produced some remarkable paintings of the holy lands -- some of my favorites among his works.

His website has crashed. I'll try to post some favorites later.

I must be a snob, since I look down on snobs, especially art snobs. TK’s products are beautiful and most certainly qualify as art.

As for his personal life, I’m sure it was as full of warts as any other artist’s — but his vision was unblemished, which distinguishes him from all too many snob-approved hacks.

Sometimes you have to crush the flower to get the sweetest fragrance.

RIP.

“How do you die at home at age 54?”

There are a lot of ways. My grandfather died of a heartattack at age 55 sitting at home reading a novel. Lived clean, worked hard, then just up and died at 55.

I have an ABBA multi disc collection and actually enjoyed B&B’s “Chess” album. Really like ZZ at times as well. My cousin opened for them in TX a little over a year ago just before he died in a tragic auto accident.

If you like ZZ search on YouTube for Mean Gene Kelton. If I wasn’t on my ancient tablet I’d post the link.

Another fav musical artist I like is Sofia Jannok from Sweden. She mostly sings in her native Sami Laplander language. Has a great version of Waterloo when she was on a Eurovision talent show.

What a loss, but thankfully he was a prolific artist. I am by no means an art aficionado, but I loved his other-worldly tranquil country scenes and use of light to make them seem so inviting. His cottage scenes made you want to live there, away from the craziness of the world. So peaceful.

Although Kincaid was arguably the first popular illuminist (painter of light, as he was called), Terbush is my favorite because he took the lighting effect further. After visiting his gallery in Laguna Beach, CA by accident, I bought a small original painting of his and still have it. It's no longer hanging, but when it was, I would show friends/guests the difference in the scene when I adjusted the spot light and they would become mesmerized. One person actually asked if I would sell it to him.

Terbush's gallery had a back room where you could raise and lower the spot halogen lights directed at his paintings. They would take on a whole different look as you lowered the lights which lowered the hues in the painting. It was subtle and not psychedelic if that's what your thinking. Think the difference of shades of yellow and orange as the Sun sets lower toward the horizon. Starts with bright yellows and progresses down to orange.

Terbush was big on lush waterfall landscapes at the time until he moved to Arizona and started painting desert landscapes. They also have the illuminist feel as you fade/raise the lights on the painted rising or setting Sun over the austerity of the desert. And no, you don't have to play with your lighting to appreciate either his works or Kincaid's. They all stand alone - Kincaid with his somewhat soft lense affect and Terbush with his realist photographic affect.

Kincaid and Terbush will eventually be known as the great modern artists they are. You have to see their work to understand. Truly amazing and very emotional even for someone who doesn't appreciate art. Hell, even a fan of a velvet painting of Elvis can appreciate the idyllic affect Kincaid had on millions. Bet you have seen a Kincaid if only in a print in a hotel/motel room, and felt a sense of peace just for a moment.

This is coming from someone who wouldn't know the difference between a Monet and a bidet. What a loss, but Snooky of Jersey Shore continues on. Just mentioned this to my wife who knows nothing of art, but knows who Kincaid is and always like his idyllic cottage grove landscapes. See what I mean?

Best wishes go out to Thomas Kincaid's family. I thank Mr. Kincaid for the serenity he has brought to so many.

I lived near Sacramento when I was attending graduate school. Thomas Kincade paintings were sold at ALL the malls.

His work is okay, he was definitely skilled, but it just wasn't my style. Too Christmas card like. I never bought any of his paintings.

I have a lot of framed Disney movie posters. One poster I have shows the St. Louis Arch as a giant coat hanger buried underground, with part of one side sticking above ground... Art definitely is a personal taste.

"They are feel good, tranquil paintings that cause me to slow down and admire them for a bit during a busy day."

Exactly. They were never meant to cause thought or discussion or hysterical art rhetoric. He painted serenity. Not such a bad purpose in my book, but then I'm not avant garde. Hell, I still like looking at the Mona Lisa.

Yes, there have been many "masters of light". Actually, most landscape artists use light to enhance their work. However, Kinkade was known as an illuminist - an artist who used light to further his view of the subject matter.

I'm not surprised to see all the snobs here who think he was second rate (you notwithstanding). Visual art is suppose move you, much like the art of music. No, he wasn't Monet or da Vinci or countless other classic painters.

Kinkade was who he was and millions have felt good while looking at his works for just seconds. I've often looked at post-modern and abstract works trying to find a feeling behind it - rarely got one. Although I can appreciate the technical difficulties of the design.

Even though I like to look at abstract art as an interesting design or intellectual exercise, I've always known in my heart that tranquil landscapes were more beneficial to the human soul. It's like looking at a puppy. Unless it's from some poor soul in New Mexico who fancies himself an artist, how can they not make you feel good?

I've known your point since a child and have always had landscape paintings, serial graphs, and prints around me. Thank you.

I've always known in my heart that tranquil landscapes were more beneficial to the human soul.

I have to admit you were way ahead of me. It was a long time dawning for me -- I was giving too much to the looking-at-art-as-an-intellectual-exercise school! Not until I was in my mid 30s did I begin to appreciate it the way you have.

Landscapes are ... at first glance, boring, ho-hum, uneventful. But I've learned something interesting about them, at least for me. TWICE now, landscapes that at first went in one eye and out the other, have become highly cherished art pieces. I know the paintings didn't change over the 12-18 months it took for them to grow on me!

"I am an artist and while I do not like Kincade’s paintings, neither do I like paint thrown on canvases. There is a lot of good stuff out that that is neither one."

Kincade painted schlock, but he was a genius at it, or at least at his approach to it. Anyone who can outrage as many artists as Kincade did has something going for him. Not my taste either, but I'm sorry he's gone.
