The following is a list of artwork, along with the fakes, in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Which paintings have fake and which don't are mostly the same as in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, with a few exceptions. Unlike in that game, two of the statues do not have fakes, and are always genuine, while some of the paintings may have more than one forged version.

The table may be transcluded by using {{:Forgery/Spotting a Fake (New Horizons)}}.
