The serene painting (たおやかなめいが, taoyakanameiga?, graceful masterpiece) was introduced in City Folk and is only available from Crazy Redd's 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. The painting is a copy of Leonardo Da Vinci's oil-on-canvas portrait Lady with an Ermine - painted from 1489 to 1490, it depicts a woman holding an ermine- a stoat in its winter coat.

Stolen from Poland in 1939 by the Nazis, it was later recovered by the Allied forces after World War II and was returned to the Czartoryski Museum in Kraków. It remains there to this day.

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:

Lady with an Ermine
Leonardo da Vinci, circa 1490
Oil on wood panel

One of only four portraits of women painted by da Vinci, one of which is the "Mona Lisa." Some believe that the "ermine" is not actually an ermine, but rather a white ferret!

  • 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.
