Mrs. Kinkade disputed those claims and sought full control of the estate. She portrayed Ms. Pinto in court papers as a gold-digger who is trying to cheat the artist’s rightful heirs.

Kinkade, the self-described “Painter of Light,” was known for sentimental scenes of country gardens and pastoral landscapes. His work led to a commercial empire of franchised galleries, reproduced artwork and spin-off products that was said to fetch some $100 million each year in sales.

‘Trip to Bountiful’ revival draws Tyson, Gooding

Cuba Gooding Jr., Vanessa Williams and Condola Rashad will be joining Cicely Tyson on “The Trip to Bountiful.”

Producers said Thursday that the trio have signed up to star in a revival of Horton Foote’s moving play about acceptance and coming home. It first appeared on Broadway in 1953 and became a 1985 film starring Geraldine Page.

Miss Tyson, who is an Academy Award nominee and an Emmy Award winner, will now have some glittering company onstage: Mr. Gooding has an Oscar, Miss Williams is a Tony and Emmy nominee, and Miss Rashad has a Tony nomination for “Stick Fly.”

The revival will appear for just 14 weeks and previews begin March 31 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Opening night is set for April 23. Michael Wilson will direct.
