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:

A Bar at The Folies-Bergère
Édouard Manet, circa 1882
Oil on canvas

Close inspection of the mirror behind this painting's subject reveals many mysteries and paradoxes... In fact, the painting is based on multiple perspectives, which explains the unusual placement of some items. Sadly, this is Manet's last major work. He passed away a year after it was complete, at age 51.

  • 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.
