Everyone knows Thomas Kinkade, the “Painter of Light”, who rocketed to success in the ‘90s and whose paintings were sold in malls everywhere. But when he died in 2012, his daughters uncovered a trove of darker works, which revealed a man they never really knew.

Marketing himself to the Christian community, Kinkade’s work was always cozy and safe. He created a mass market home decor empire and a larger than life persona. But behind this facade, he dealt with alcoholism and eventually succumbed to his demons. His more private pieces, numbering in the hundreds, show him in a more complex and realistic light.
