Animal Crossing New Horizons Guide To Know Real Art From Fake

So you want to fill out your Museum with art? The good news is that you only have to wait for Redd to come in his trawler to bring you the goods. The bad news is, most of his wares are knock offs. From my own experience, only 1 in every 4 art items that he offers is genuine. If you want to get the real Animal Crossing New Horizons painting and statues (and you did not major in Art History), you’ll need to do some research.

How to tell real art from fake in Animal Crossing New Horizons

Spotting a forged art in this game is simple as long as you know what to watch out for. When you first buy an art from Redd, you will be given a genuine one. The next time though may be different because he may present you with a fake one.

Animal Crossing New Horizons art items are named differently

Forged art items in Animal Crossing New Horizons have subtle differences from real ones. The biggest reason why it may be difficult to know if an art is real or fake though is the way the items are named. 

Although the paintings and statues are based on real world works of art, you won’t normally recognize them readily because of their funny names. For instance, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is named Famous Painting while Vermeer’s The Milkmaid is labeled Quaint Painting. 


Unless you are an art connoisseur, it may take you some digging to know the exact name of a painting. 

Once you bring your art to Blathers, he’ll display it with its real name.

Filling your museum with real art can take some time as Redd may only give you a visit once per week. Since not everything that he’ll offer you is genuine, it can take an awful long time achieve your goal.
