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. It has no forgery and is always genuine. The Dynamic Painting is a copy of The Great Wave off Kanagawa, a woodblock print that is the most famous work of Hokusai. This print was part of a series called "36 Views of Mount Fuji" - on close inspection of the painting, Mount Fuji is clearly visible of the horizon.

Other than the mountain, the print depicts three boats struggling against huge waves near Kanagawa - this view today would most likely have the skyscrapers of Tokyo in the background as well.

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:

Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji The Great Wave off Kanagawa
Katsushika Hokusai, circa 1831
Woodblock print

The signature piece of ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai, painted as part of a series when he was in his 60s. Although it is dubbed "Thirty-Six Views," he eventually added 10 more to make 46 in total.

  • 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.
