ACB Art Merchant Shop

A Roman art merchant's shop

An art merchant is a person who buys and sells works of art. In Renaissance Italy, 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.[1][2]


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 be viewed at the Villa Auditore's second floor painting gallery while also providing some background information on the painting itself and its artist. Art merchants were not as common as blacksmiths or doctors, but there was at least one situated in each city.

Treasure maps[]

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. Local art merchants in 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.

  • 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 Raphael.
  • Art merchants shops featured paintings that could not be purchased; most notably, the portrait of Giuliano de' Medici by Sandro Botticelli was seen hanging prominently.
  • There was a typing mistake in the description of the painting "Resurrection of Christ."
  • Several paintings such as Albrecht Dürer's Eve or Raphael's Young Man with an Apple were painted several years after the events of each game, so it would have been impossible for Ezio to buy the artwork or the replicas earlier in the games.
  • During modern times, the building previously occupied by Monteriggioni's art merchant had been converted to an information kiosk.
  • In Assassin's Creed: Revelations, art merchants were replaced by book shops.
