GUEST,josepp BS: Obit: Thomas Kinkade - mass market 'artist' (98* d) RE: BS: Obit: Thomas Kinkade - mass market 'artist' 11 Apr 12


Well, Bobert's art certainly has more heart and character than anything you'll ever see in a Kinkade picture. Similar to Aubrey Beardsley but not copying him.

As for people spending $150,000 on a Kinkade piece of junk, it's just like the idiot who spent $50,000 on a complete set of Beanie Babies back in the 90s. When you're speculating on stuff like this that does not have any true artistic merit but only populist appeal, you have to understand that the bottom could drop out at any moment. It's no different than a housing bubble except it's an art bubble, it will rise fast and if you're right there to cash in on it, you can make some money but if you wait too long, it will burst. Who cares about Beanie Babies anymore?

Sooner or later--sooner than later--the Kinkade demand will top out. fF you've got Kinkades--sell them now. Don't get greedy and wait. No reputable art dealer will have anything to do with a Kinkade and once that reality sinks in, show's over.
