Cottage Memories commemorates three of Thomas Kinkade's masterful oil paintings. Each individual image has been previously published by Lighpost Publishing as a full-size limited edition lithograph. Cottage Memories is printed on acid-free paper, matted and framed according to the artist's specifications, bears a plate printed signature in gold, and is hereby certified as an authorized issue of Lighthouse Publishing.
The Cottage Memories images are based on three of Thomas Kinkade's most renowned cottage paintings: Julianne's Cottage, Evening at Swanbrooke Cottage-Thomashire and Heather's Hutch. This Portfolio Edition is a tribute to England's beautiful pastoral scenery of quaint cottages and lush gardens. The images, top to bottom, are:
Julianne's Cottage was published in 1992. This lovely Bed and Breakfast, found quite by chance by the Kinkade family during a trip in England, was the home and farm of Beatrix Potter the creator of Peter Rabbit and other children's stories.
Evening at Swanbrooke Cottage-Thomashire was published in 1992. This idyllic cottage situated beside a peaceful creek was found after a summer evening's stroll. Thomas Kinkade felt so akin to the scene that for several days he set up his easel on the bank of the brook to capture the cottage's tranquillity and beauty.
Heather's Hutch was published in 1993. Discovered in the English Cotswolds, Thomas Kinkade was inspired to paint this charming "dollhouse" cottage in celebration of the innocent and playful imagination of his daughters.
Please also find listed a similar piece to this entitled "Memories of England". I'm willing to make a deal if you buy the set.
Each individual print is 5.5" x 4.5". Entire frame measures 10"wide x 20.5" tall.
A lovely addition to anyone's home!
