Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Commissioned from the artist

    This work is accompanied by a letter, written by the consignor. In it, he writes that after vacationing with Kinkade on the consignor's yacht in Southeast Alaska, the artist asked if he would like to commission a work on the Klondike Goldrush, an interest both men shared. The consignor writes that he agreed and 'I charted a plane to fly [Kinkade and his wife] to Skagway to photograph the town and the terrain. Later I provided Thomas historical photographs of some of the famous ships that came to Skagway during the gold rush. This is the genesis of his painting "Skagway 1898."
