In New Horizons, the museum label reads:

Giuseppe Arcimboldo, circa 1563
Oil on canvas

A curious portrait by Giuseppe Arcimboldo, an Italian painter from the late 16th century. It doesn't take a particularly sharp eye to see that the entire portrait is composed of fresh produce.

  • 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.
