Paintings are decorative furniture items that can be placed on background walls. Each is a framed image that depicts a particular scene, usually Terraria-related. Their tooltips generally contain a person's name, apparently intended to credit each painting's artist; some names may be fictional, though some correspond to known Terraria sprite designers (see Trivia below).
There are currently 105 paintings, 21 of which are sold by the Painter under certain conditions, 4 by the Golfer after a golf score of 2000 under certain Moon phases, and 9 are randomly sold by the Traveling Merchant. 15 other paintings are found placed naturally in Underground Cabins, 14 in the Underground Desert , 24 in the Dungeon, 12 in The Underworld, 5 randomly acquired from Goodie Bags, and 1 awarded randomly by the Angler for completing a fishing quest.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Catacomb is visually similar to Paintings and operates similarly, but is not considered a painting in the game's code. This is most likely because it has a different look, both picture and the frame, each time it is placed.
- When a painting is generated in a dungeon, the game can place 2 sizes of paintings: a 3x3 painting (2/3 chance), and a 6x4 painting (1/3 chance).
- A random number between 1 and 7 (inclusive) is chosen for the 3x3 paintings. For 6x4 paintings, a random number between 1 and 17 (inclusive) is chosen. Note that The Guardian's Gaze is rarer than the other paintings because it must be chosen in two 1 in 7 rolls to appear. The chances for every painting are listed below.
- Blood Moon Rising 10.78%
- The Hanged Man 10.78%
- Glory of the Fire 10.78%
- Bone Warp 10.78%
- Skellington J Skellingsworth 10.78%
- The Cursed Man 10.78%
- The Guardian's Gaze 1.35%
- The Eye Sees the End 1.94%
- Something Evil is Watching You 1.94%
- The Twins Have Awoken 1.94%
- The Screamer 1.94%
- Goblins Playing Poker 1.94%
- Dryadisque 1.94%

- Other decorative wall hangings include Hanging Skeleton and Wall Skeleton (both looted from the Dungeon), Trophies (dropped by Bosses), Holly (looted from Christmas Presents), Racks (crafted at the Sawmill), Animal Skins (sold by the Traveling Merchant), Compass Rose, Life Preserver, Ship's Wheel, Treasure Map and Wall Anchor (Angler quest rewards).
- Although Banners have the appearance of being wall hangings, they are not hung on the wall, but rather from blocks.
- Although the paintings "First Encounter", "Good Morning", "Through the Window" and "Underground Reward" appear to be square, their ingame size is 3 blocks wide by 2 blocks high.
