Is there any value to spending money on paintings in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood? Some of the paintings are quite expensive (e.g. Raphael's Self Portrait) but judging from the bank records they don't appear to pay any dividends.

No need to get them right away, wait a while till you have so much incoming you don't know what to do with it. – Viper_Sb Nov 26 '10 at 14:14
If you don't buy Raphael's paintings, he will not become famous enough to have a teenage mutant ninja turtle named after him. Do you want that on your conscience? – Kip Nov 27 '10 at 1:33

They are only for aesthetic reasons, there's no change in the game for collecting them.

I thought in Brotherhood there was no property? – Sadly Not Nov 26 '10 at 16:17
I have just double-checked and this is NOT the case in Brotherhood. I bought a painting and my income remained steady at 14,505ƒ. – ZoogieZork Nov 26 '10 at 22:40
@thethinman Brotherhood does have property (remember Brotherhood is the third game), but it is buildings only. – tzenes Jan 27 '11 at 8:57
@tzenes Ah thanks, I remember now. – Sadly Not Jan 27 '11 at 16:41

Collecting all the paintings gains you a trophey
