Culture and Art Gallery (29)

  • 6 in the south east corner

  • 1 in the kitchen above the open cupboard

Hall of Heroes (51)


Most general stores sell paintings, and there are many to be found in dungeons all across Skyrim. The number of paintings sold by a general store is random. It can be either 1, 2 or none, it differs from playthrough to playthrough. Paintings can also randomly be found in boss chests and in containers in houses (like chests and cupboards).
