"This painting depicts a common scene of the day where extra wheat is collected by the needy."
— Museum Exhibit, Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The Common Painting is one of the pieces of artwork available in the Animal Crossing series games. Unlike in earlier games, in which it is only available in Crazy Redd's, it is a Spotlight Item in City Folk. The Common Painting is a copy of Jean-François Millet's The Gleaners, painted in 1857. It has a very sad subject- despite having warm colors and showing a harvest, its focus is on three peasant women collecting scraps of wheat in the foreground, their poverty obvious despite the landowner's bounty in the background. When it was first exhibited, the painting received negative reviews from the upper class, who saw it as glorifying the common worker without any references to the Bible. It is a good example of Realism art. Once housed in the Louvre, The Gleaners is currently on display in the Musée d'Orsay.


In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, there are no forgeries of this painting.
