Art Notes

As Kinkade was heavily influenced by the French Impressionists early in his career, he felt a French-sounding name would be helpful if he were to paint impressionistic works under a pseudonym. With the name Robert Girrard, Thomas Kinkade found a new identity. This anonymity allowed him the freedom to experiment in style and subject matter and to explore with palette, brush strokes and broken color. He employed techniques utilized by the French Impressionists, techniques which have influenced the style that has become world-renowned through The Painter of Light™.
