Art in New Leaf (also known as artwork), are paintings or sculpture bought from Redd. A forgery is the opposite of a genuine painting. In which, Blathers will not accept a forgery and Tom Nook will identify it as forged art.

In New Leaf, it is possible to determine whether or not a painting is forged by visual inspection. Some areas of the painting will have a noticeable difference from the genuine painting. However, there are 14 paintings and two sculptures that will be authentic in all forms at all times.

Trivia

  • If a glitch is done on a painting or sculpture, it then has a chance to change into the real painting or vice-versa. It is unknown as to why this occurs.
  • In every Animal Crossing series game except for New Leaf and New Horizons, a forged painting appears as a regular painting until sold to Tom Nook or donated to Blathers at the museum, where both may identify the picture.
