Now, players could be hesitating to purchase this famous piece of art from Redd, considering the character is notorious for selling fake pieces of art. Players purchasing this renowned piece of art from Redd in Animal Crossing: New Horizons should be wary. There is a phony version of this artwork in the title, so players will need to be on the lookout for the part of the fake version that will give away that it is the fake. This feature is that the fake version has a coffee stain in the top right corner.

There is no doubt that the Academic Painting in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the rarest and most visually appealing pieces of art in the game.
