Yosemite Artist's Point By Thomas Kinkade Signed And Numbered Print:
EARLY SIGNED THOMAS KINKADE PRINT AT A SUPER PRICE
Thomas Kinkade is considered one of the most popular artists in America today. Roughly 10 million of his paintings and prints have been purchased by his many admirers. Kinkade collectors anxiously await each new print with anticipation with the hopes of purchasing it before it is sold out.
One of Kinkade’s earliest works was Artist’s Point, Yosemite National Park. It was painted in 1989 and may have been the springboard to his success. This attractive print is very difficult to come by and is in great demand. The edition size is only 4185 hand signed and numbered prints and according to InformArt magazine it is currently retailing between $400-$450.
The image is 9”x12” and the overall size is 14”x16” printed on 100% acid-free paper using fade-resistant inks. Each print has an official National Park Academy of the Arts embossed seal and comes with a certificate of authenticity. These prints are new, never framed.
I am the original purchaser of these prints, buying them in 1989 when they were first issued. I am a major duck stamp print dealer and in 1988 a series for the National Parks began. The 1988 was Yellowstone National Park and it sold very well. I purchased several hundred of them. (I have been a print distributor to several other dealers for many years). In 1989, the contest was won by a relatively unknown artist named Thomas Kinkade. I bought several hundred of these prints as well.
The prints are being offered now for roughly the same price that my dealers paid for them in 1989. There is a high probability that if you have seen this print offered before, that it originated with me.
With the premature death of Thomas Kinkade, there has been a tremendous surge of interest in these prints. I was tempted to raise my price to what my competition is at ($199 & up) to capitalize on the renewed interest, but decided against it. I want as many people as possible to be able to enjoy these beautiful prints. Remember, these are actually hand signed by Thomas Kinkade.
