The Basic Painting is one of the pieces of artwork available in the Animal Crossing series games. In Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing: Wild World, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, it is available only from Crazy Redd's shop, but in Animal Crossing: City Folk it is a spotlight item from Tom Nook's Store.

The painting in real life is called The Blue Boy, and was painted in 1770 by Thomas Gainsborough. It is an oil painting, and is currently on display in Huntington Library, San Marino, California.


In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, if both of his arms are bent at his sides, then it is a forgery.
