The amazing painting (すごいめいが, sugoimeiga?, amazing masterpiece) is one of the pieces of artwork available in the Animal Crossing series games and can be collected by Happy Home Handbook in Happy Home Designer. In New Horizons, the painting can be donated to the museum and be added to the art gallery. As this painting can be bought from Jolly Redd's Treasure Trawler, players should keep in mind that they may be purchasing a forgery. This piece is based on the 1642 work The Night Watch (De Nachtwacht) by Dutch painter Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn. Since the Amazing Painting is only available at Crazy Redd's, one should be wary of forgeries.
The Night Watch was painted roughly around 1640-1642 and is considered one of Rembrandt's greatest works. The varnish hides Rembrandt's usage of various colors which have now resulted in an earthy tone. However, the painting retains its usage of chiaroscuro (a method which manipulates the light and dark colors for an added depth), resulting in the dynamic focus of three subjects: the captain, the lieutenant, and the little girl.
