Artist And ShopNBC Vendor Thomas Kinkade Dies At Age 54

Artist and ShopNBC vendor Thomas Kinkade has died at the very young age of 54.

Kinkade passed away Friday, apparently of natural causes, in his home in Los Gatos, Calif., according to the Associated Press.

“Kinkade’s sentimental paintings were beloved by middlebrow America but reviled by the art establishment,” AP reported. “They generally depict tranquil scenes, such as country homes with lush landscaping and streams running nearby. Many contain images from Bible passages”

Well, the artsy set may not have liked Kinkade’s work, but ShopNBC did. He sold some of his wares there.

Kinkade apparently called himself the nation’s most collected living artist. He did an estimated $100 million in sales annually, and his works are reportedly in 10 million homes.

RIP Thomas.
