Interactive Animal Crossing Art Guide: Spot the Fake

Jolly Redd is shady—even Isabelle thinks so... Here's a quick way to know what you're buying legit works of art. Or not, if that's your thing.
Animal Crossing New Horizons has added 43 paintings and sculptures, which you can purchase from Redd's boat (whenever it happens to show up). I've created the table below to weed out fake paintings, track pieces of art that you've bought, and which you've donated to Blathers.

Copy this doc to start your art checklist!

Oh, and I've highlighted the real paintings without fakes in green!
