Thomas Kinkade’s Adds ‘Beauty and the Beast’ to Disney Dreams Collection

'Beauty and the Beast Falling in Love' by Thomas KinkadeAdmittedly we’re a little late to the party, especially since we’ve traditionally been so good at revealing Thomas Kinkade’s newest Disney paintings before he does, but as we always say, if it’s not Baroque, don’t fix it.

Enter the sixth and newest entry to Kinkade’s Disney Dreams collection, Beauty and the Beast Falling in Love.

According to the official description for the painting:

Thomas Kinkade has spent over 700 studio hours on this painting which is the most he has ever spent on any painting (Cinderella and Pinocchio had about 300 hours each).
