The Serene Painting was introduced in Animal Crossing: City Folk and is only available from Redd's. The painting is a copy of Leonardo da Vinci's oil-on-canvas portrait Lady with an Ermine - painted from 1489 to 1490, it depicts a woman holding an ermine- a stoat in its winter coat. Despite the title, it would appear that this "stoat" is actually a ferret.

This painting's Animal Crossing name was probably given due to the girl's peaceful, benign expression - the ferret's rather menacing look is impossible to see in detail in earlier games prior to New Horizons.

Stolen from Poland in 1939 by the Nazis, it was later recovered by the Allied forces after World War II and was returned to the Czartoryski Museum in Kraków. It remains there to this day.

In New Leaf, if the woman is holding a skinny cat rather than a plump ermine, it is a forgery.

In New Horizons, if the ermine has a black-and-white patterned coat rather than pure white, it is a forgery.
