Paintings appear in all of the games in the Animal Crossing series. They play a small part in the game, with players having the option of donating them to the museum or placing them in their homes.

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, however, and so are given an adjective to describe them, followed by the word 'painting'. Such examples are the 'Worthy Painting', 'Flowery Painting', and the 'Common Painting'.

Usage

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 Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Forged Paintings can be sold for 10 bells. In Animal Crossing: Wild World, players may exchange a forged painting for 100 Bells upon signing up for a certain kind of insurance. In Animal Crossing: 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 in a garbage can.

Obtaining

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 one of the Nookling Stores (in New Leaf).

There are more paintings available in Animal Crossing: City Folk and New Leaf, although some that appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World have been omitted.

In Animal Crossing

In Animal Crossing, the player can only obtain painting 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 16 paintings in total.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, 26 paintings can be obtained. In the game, the ability to identify fakes before sale was added, with forged paintings showing distinct differences to their real, authentic versions, using the new swivel camera function.

All paintings can be purchased from Crazy Redd's for 3,920 bells and sold for 490 bells. Villagers also give out paintings as presents, particularly smug villagers. However, there is no way to authenticate until after the sale.

Trivia

  • 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. Simply 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 Animal Crossing: 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.
