Donation to the museum

After donating it to the museum, a museum label will give a description of the painting. In New Horizons, the museum label reads:

Vitruvian Man
Leonardo da Vinci, circa 1487
Pen and ink on paper

This drawing is based on the "ideal" human-body ratio, as stated in "De architectura." "De architecture" was a treatise by Vitruvius, and architect from the early 1st century BCE.

  • Note: Prior to New Leaf, paintings did not have visual differences between forged and genuine versions. Therefore, paintings given to Blathers were fake or authentic at random.
