The Wistful Painting can be donated to the museum for addition to the art gallery. As this painting can be bought from Crazy Redd's in later games, players should bear in mind that they may be purchasing a counterfeit.


In New Leaf, if the woman's bandana is orange, then the painting is a counterfeit.
