Thomas Kinkade: Will Thomas Kinkade ever gain the respect of art critics?

  • Thomas Kinkade will gain the respect of art critics.

    Thomas Kinkade will gain the respect of art critics. While his art is not cutting edge, modern, or forward, it is still beautiful art that displays Kinkade's talent. He clearly has an eye for color, proportions, and beauty. Thomas Kinkade may not ever be a top artist, but he will most likely still gain the respect of some art critics.

  • Unfortunately, No. No.

    A vast majority of today's artwork is complete poop..LITERALLY. So, for artists who work makes sense, is understandable, relatable and visually appealing...Good luck in today's society. Take up an engineering course instead of that art education course. Use your new found knowledge to build a time machine, so you can go back to the golden years of art.

  • No, i disagree.

    I disagree simply because His work is too ordinary. Today, in the art world, weird is the norm. What's artfully done is considered bad art, just because it is a recognizable scene. Modern art doesn't really make sense to the public. It's just what the critics have decided is somehow more sophisticated than actually being able to paint a landscape. Kinkade is the victim of this backwards thinking.

  • Thomas Kinkade will never garner the respect of the art critics

    Thomas Kinkade made a lot of money very fast producing and expertly marketing paintings. Art critics are likely to never embrace Kinkade because his audience was the general public and gained a large following in the evangelical community. Being popular with the general public and especially with evangelicals is not a good recipe for critical success.
