ACB Art Merchant Shop

An art merchant's shop in Rome

Art merchants were the primary suppliers of two-dimensional drawn media, such as paintings and maps. With his apprentices, an art merchant could reproduce and sell decent copies of most works of art and drawings. They were still a raw trade, much like blacksmiths.

PaintingsEdit

Each painting increased Monteriggioni's value, with the higher the price, the higher the added value. Paintings sold by art merchants changed depending on what region they were in. Once purchased, they could also be viewed at the art gallery on the second floor of the Villa Auditore, for some background information on the painting itself, and its artist. Art merchants weren't as common as blacksmiths or doctors, but there was at least one situated in each city.

Treasure mapsEdit

Treasure maps marked the location of treasure chests located all over Italy. Like paintings, treasure maps differed depending on what location they were bought at. The art merchant of each region – being Florence, Tuscany, Romagna and Venice – possessed a map for each district that they covered. There was also another treasure map for Monteriggioni. Treasure maps for each district were unlocked after Ezio had visited the district at least once.

TriviaEdit

  • In Assassin's Creed II, 8 out of the 30 paintings that were available for purchase were painted by Leonardo da Vinci.
  • In Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, all of the paintings that were available for purchase were painted by the Italian Renaissance artist Raphael.
  • There was a typing mistake in the description of the painting "Resurrection of Christ."
  • During modern times, the building previously occupied by Monteriggioni's art merchant, has been coverted to an information kiosk.
  • In Assassin's Creed: Revelations, art merchants were replaced by book shops.
  • "The Young Man with an Apple" was painted by Raphael in 1505, but it is available far earlier in the game. In fact, Raphael's first documented work was in 1501, so it would have been impossible for Ezio to buy the artwork or the replicas earlier in the game.
