Limited Edition Comprehensive Catalog Remarque A remarque is a drawing or symbol on the verso or reverse side of the image. Thom often used the back of Limited Edition canvases to personalize the image for the edition or for a specific image owner. Master highlighters, Thom���s brother Patrick Kinkade, Nanette Kinkade and Thom���s daughters were all known to inscribe remarques with varying degrees of detail. RE- Renaissance Edition For images released prior to April 6, 2012, the Renaissance Edition is a reserve edition created with a textured brushstroke process that recreates the artist���s actual brushwork. It is then finished by a Master Highlighter and a special remarque is applied to the verso side of the canvas. Upon satisfactory completion, the artist hand signs the front of the canvas and a foil-stamped silver Renaissance Edition seal is applied to the back. Each Renaissance Edition is designated by the letters RE during the numbering process. Robert Girrard In the early 1980���s Thomas Kinkade decided to use the brush name Robert Girrard to have absolute artistic freedom. This freedom led to a joyful experimentation that resulted in numerous breakthroughs and advances in Thom���s artistic techniques and talents. Thom painted as Robert Girrard for over fifteen years and was able to accomplish the creation of mood and atmosphere in landscape and broadened palette allowing new dimensions to be employed. SN-Standard Numbered The Standard Numbered canvas is individually hand-highlighted and numbered with the designation of S/N in the numbering process.
