Paintings are valuable items weighing 2 kg each and net you $500 for each one you sell. This achievement coincides with “No Stone Left Unturned” as multiple houses and safes where a painting can be found will also have a stash in it. So make sure to use both maps to mark off the relevant stash number and painting as you go.
Also, keep in mind that paintings are not tallied until you actually sell them at an art store. If you die or get arrested while carrying paintings, you will have to go get them again. Always sell off paintings as soon as you can in order to avoid marking off a painting, only to forget it was never delivered due to death later.
