Animal Crossing: New Horizons -- All the Real Artwork on Jolly Redd's Boat


Animal Crossing: New Horizons has brought back the ability to add art to your museum, although you'll need a discerning eye in order to complete your collection. Jolly Redd is back in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and is once again selling art for your museum. As with previous games, not all of the art Jolly Redd has for sale is legitimate, and you'll have to determine which of his pieces are legitimate and which are forgeries. Luckily, players can examine the artwork before they purchase it, so players can see for themselves whether a piece of art is real or fake.

While all of the artwork Jolly Redd has for sale are famous pieces of art, each piece has a generic name in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which can complicate matters if you're trying to Google a painting to see if it's real or fake. Some of the paintings are also always legitimate, so you can't even trust your own memory if you're trying to determine if something is real or fake. Luckily, we have a list of all the available artwork in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, along with their counterfeit versions.
