There is a treasure trove of different characters that players can interact with in the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. One of these characters is Redd, who players can purchase art from to add to their collections at a museum or sell to gain some Bells. One of the paintings that Redd has available for sale is the Wistful Painting. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know about the unique Wistful Painting covered for you.

Players will find that the Wistful Painting is the piece known as Girl with a Pearl Earring created by the artist Johannes Vermeer who was a Dutch Baroque Period painter. He specialized in domestic interior scenes of middle-class life.

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 woman’s earring is a star instead of a round pearl. Sometimes her eyes will be closed in a fake version as well. 

There is no doubt that the Wistful Painting in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the rarest and most visually appealing pieces of art in the game. Those looking for an excellent addition to their museum would be unwise to pass by the opportunity to acquire this famous piece of art and have it shown off in their museum for visitors to view.
