How to determine real vs. fake Glowing Paintings in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Redd isn’t scamming you on this one, pal.

Redd is an incredible con artist in Animal Crossing: New Horizons who occasionally parts with legitimate pieces of art. If he offers you a Glowing Painting, you would obviously become skeptical and want to know how to spot a fake from the real thing.

Fortunately, the Glowing Painting is a rare case of Redd being perfectly honest with you. Animal Crossing: New Horizons does not feature a fake version of the Glowing Painting, so when Redd offers you the chance to buy one, don’t hesitate to scoop it up.

About the Glowing Painting

The Glowing Painting is an Animal Crossing replica of J.M.W. Turner’s 1838 piece “The Fighting Temeraire, tugged to her last Berth to be broken up” that Blathers would love to add to his gallery. This piece is now featured on the Bank of England’s £20 note, and if you’ve seen Skyfall, you may have noticed the painting when James Bond discusses his take on art with Q.
