Surely somebody must have reported Redd to the authorities by now…

On random days, except Sunday, Redd will show up in his tent to sell works of art. You can only buy one piece of art per visit and it is possible that you’ll buy a fake.

The table below outlines how to spot fakes when buying artwork. This is important as Blathers won’t accept fakes when donating art work to the museum.

**Always Genuine**
Calm Painting, Common Painting, Fine Painting, Flowery Painting, Moody Painting, Nice Painting, Perfect Painting, Proper Painting, Scenic Painting, Warm Painting, Worthy Painting
**Artwork** **How to Spot the Fake**
Amazing Painting The man in black is on the left and the man in white is on the right in the real painting. If the man in black is on the right and the man in white is on the left, the painting is fake.
Basic Painting Only one of the blue boy’s arms should be bent, the other should be straight. If both of his arms are bent, the painting is fake.
Dynamic Painting If Mount Fuji is small, the painting is real. If Mount Fiji is large and fills up the space between the water, the painting is fake.
Famous Painting The Mona Lisa’s fingers point to the bottom right corner of the painting. If her fingers point to the bottom left, the painting is fake.
Graceful Painting In the real painting the beauty is looking to the right.
Jolly Painting The nose in the fake painting is made of a carrot. In the real painting it is made out of a green vegetable.
**Artwork** **How to Spot the Fake**
Moving Painting The shell is upside down in the fake painting.
Neutral Painting The real painting has a perfect green leaf in the top left of the bowl. The fake painting has a green leaf with a hole inside it.
Quaint Painting The milkmaid is wearing a hat in the real painting. No hat means it is fake.
Scary Painting The real painting has all his fingers pointing. In the fake painting, only one finger is pointing on each hand.
Serene Painting The fake painting has a fluffy white cat but the real painting has a skinny cat.
Solemn Painting If the blonde girl in the middle is twice as tall as the girl on the left, the painting is fake. The real one has both girls on the left at the same height.
Wild Painting The painting is real if the left side is lighter than the right. The fake has the dark side on the left.
Wistful Painting The real painting has a blue hat whereas the fake painting has a red hat.
**Artwork** **How to Spot the Fake**
Ancient Statue The real statue has closed eyes while the fake on has open eyes.
Beautiful Statue The real Venus has short hair but the fake Venus has long, shoulder-length hair.
Gallant Statue The real statute has no cloth on the statue’s right shoulder, just his left. The fake has cloth on both shoulders.
Great Statue The real statute has an open hand with the fingers turned up to the sky. The fake statute has fingers pointing straight out.
Motherly Statue The real statute has two children under the wolf while the fake only has one.
Mystic Statue The real statue has a cylindrical hat while the fake has a spherical hat.
Robust Statue The real statue has a smooth disc while the fake has a bumpy disc.
Valiant Statue The real Nike has angel wings whereas the fake one has bat wings. I guess the fake came out of Gotham City.
