What You Should Know About
Animal Crossing New Horizons - Art and Redd

Redd is a salesman selling pieces of painting and statues in Animal Crossing New Horizons. What ACNH art can you get from him or how to get? In this article, we’ll talk about the things you should know about Animal Crossing New Horizons Art and Redd.

Tips for ACNH

1. Redd is back with new name Jolly Redd, he runs his shop out of a boat that is named Treasure Trawler always docks at that weird secret feeling rocky beach that every island has on its north coast.

2. Redd has been in every single Animal Crossing game, but to get him to appear in New Horizons, you have to donate at least 60 Animal Crossing items to your museum, includes fossils, fish, and bugs combined. So you were probably past this point by the time Redd was introduced.

3. When Redd first shows up, Isabelle will alert you that a shady figure is roaming around your island, if you buy a painting from him, the first painting is guaranteed to be genuine and you can donate it to the new art gallery in the museum, but don't get used to it.

4. You can only buy one of the four art pieces displayed from Redd per visit, so choose wisely. You can purchase both paintings and statues inside from him for 4,980 ACNH bells each.

5. Once you buy it from Redd, the art will get mailed to you the next day.

6. Redd is trying to pawn off fake art as the genuine article, once he sets up his Treasure Trawler,there is literally no chance that all four pieces he's selling are real, there's a 50% chance that he's selling three fakes and one genuine work, but that number shifts every time he visits. There is even a 10% chance he's selling one fake and three reals or four fakes.

7. Even if you spot the real deal every time, it's going to take a while to fill your art wing, statistically speaking, there's only a 20% chance that Redd will be selling a real painting or sculpture that you don't already have, you may even get the same real painting twice.

8. Redd will quickly state there are no refunds.Blathers won't accept fake art into the museum, Timmy and Tommy won't buy them from you. But you can decorate your house with them.

9. Every painting and statue in Animal Crossing New Horizons is based on real-life artwork. You can tell the art is fake because it makes changes to the piece that it's based on. Some are pretty obvious, but others can be pretty hard to spot. Some paintings even have more than one fake version.

10. A few ACNH art are always genuine, like Van Gogh's Sunflowers. Buying fake art is bad enough, but some of the fake art is haunted. If you interact with them at night, they freaking move, or grin, or blink, or seep through the canvas.

11. If you don't want to risk buying haunted artwork, you can still buy two pieces of furniture on the Treasure Trawler. While they're a bit overpriced, Redd's furniture will be in rare colors that usually aren't found on your island.

12. There is another way to get art in New Horizons, but it's even less reliable than Redd. Very occasionally, one of your villagers may gift you some art in the mail. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's real. In fact, the current hypothesis is that a Smug villager will only give you fake art.
