The Master Edition is the ultimate expression of detail, artist involvement and collectability of any edition issued by the publisher. Each master edition was extensively hand-highlighted by Thomas Kinkade, and he hand sketched a highly detailed remarque on the verso side of the canvas. Enhancing the exclusivity of the Master Edition is the personal touch of the artist’s unique thumbprint and Master Edition seal located on the back of the canvas. To signify authenticity, the Master Edition was hand-signed in metallic ink by Thomas Kinkade. Each Master Edition is designated with the letter ME during the numbering process. This edition is now retired.
