How to Tell if Art is Fake | Complete Works of Art List

In New Horizons, you can now inspect art pieces before buying them from Redd. This allows you to identify if the art is genuine or not before you make a purchase.

All art pieces are based on real life paintings and sculptures, but you don't need in-depth knowledge of the art to spot the fake ones from the geniuine piece. That's what this guide is for!
