A print from the mid-Edo period by Tōshūsai Sharaku depicting a famous actor of the time. Sharaku made roughly 140 ukiyo-e prints in his career, even though it only spanned around 10 months!
- 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.
|The man's index fingers are shown in the forged painting, whereas his entire hands are opened in the real painting.|
|The forgery has the man's eyebrows pointing in the incorrect direction. The forgery is animated, and the man can be seen smiling.|
