Simpler Times

Thomas Kinkade, whose light-infused art has captured the imagination of millions, invites you to experience simpler times. Lots of reproductions of houses with their lights turned on, autumnal tones, soft-lighting, bridges and horse-drawn carriages by the 'Painter of Light'.

Kinkade deals in an extremely naïve view of nature and romantic belief in landscape painting. The reproduction of his images is big business, and you can find dedicated Thomas Kinkade dealerships across the US and the UK. That said, his dealership in Touchwood shopping centre in Solihull closed in 2009. Despite a resolute passion for shopping the locals' overriding scepticism of nature, light and God won out in the end.
