Paintings in the series are copies of renowned paintings in the real world, such as Da Vinci's Mona Lisa or Klimt's The Kiss. They do not share the same name.
Paintings are decorative items which may be donated to the museum by talking to the curator, Blathers, who will authenticate them before accepting them. All paintings will be accepted unless they are already on display, or are forged. Accepted paintings are added to the gallery in the museum with a corresponding title and name of the Player who donated it.
Forged paintings are not displayed, in keeping with the museum's wish for high quality exhibits, and are handed back to the player. Paintings may also be placed in player's house, upon which they are placed on an easel or on the wall, as of New Leaf.
Forged Paintings can be sold for 10 bells. In Wild World, players may exchange a forged painting for 100 Bells upon signing up for a certain kind of insurance. In New Leaf, forged paintings cannot be sold and will instead have to be disposed of at Re-Tail at the cost of 100 Bells or be put in a garbage can.
Paintings can be obtained from a variety of different ways throughout the series. In all of the games, the best possible way to obtain them is through Crazy Redd's or through Tom Nook's store or the Nookling stores.
In Animal Crossing
In Animal Crossing, the player can only obtain paintings by going to Crazy Redd's, a black market operated by Redd containing forged and authentic paintings, or Tom Nook's store, which always stocks authentic paintings.
There are 15 paintings in total.

In New Leaf
In New Leaf, 25 paintings can be obtained. In the game, the ability to identify fakes before sale was added, with forged paintings showing distinct differences from their authentic versions.
- If a painting is authentic but already on display in the museum, Blathers will wonder how there are two authentic paintings.
- It is possible to use Crazy Redd's forged paintings to obtain the real painting. Buy the painting and drop it on the floor outside Redd's stall. After this, the player can buy it from the catalog at Tom Nook's store unless it is brought to Blathers or Tom Nook (Note: doesn't work in New Leaf).
- If a villager mentions having bought a fake painting, it means that the painting currently in stock at Crazy Redd's is a fake.
