The graceful painting (しなやかなめいが, sinayaganameiga?, lithe masterpiece) is a painting introduced in New Leaf 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. It is a copy of Hishikawa Moronobu's color on silk ukiyo-e print. The painting depicts a woman looking backward.

Hishikawa Moronobu created this piece in the seventeenth-century Edo Period. It was painted on silk and is currently being displayed in Tokyo's National Museum.
