Update: Several gamers have confirmed they unlocked this achievement with different combinations of Pro Heists, non-Pro heists, yellow stars and even no stars. This makes it seem like it spawns 9 paintings at random and very luck based.

Personally confirmed 9/10/13 I played this again online with 2 friends on a non-Pro job with 9 stars (6 white 3 yellow) and 9 paintings spawned. They both got the achievement when we traded the paintings.

I was able to do this solo on a 8 star Pro Job: Framing Frame (5 stars plus 3 more for Overkill difficulty) this many stars and pro version did not show up for me until I was a level 39.

You have to do this stealthy! My suggestion is to put your points into at least these classes and skills and having a silenced pistol will help if you need to kill someone.

Now that you have your build ready when the mission starts head to the right of the Art Gallery. Climb the twisted staircase and make you way to the roof.

Once on the roof peek through each skylight looking for guards and security cameras so that you have a basic idea of where they are. What you are looking for though is a stack of boxes/crates under one of the skylights. Once you locate it open the skylight and drop down when it's clear.

Now that you are in crouch and peek around corners, when you see a guard walking wait for him to come to you and then show yourself, let him be alerted and as soon as you see the orange exclamation point shout at him and make him cuff himself (Push RB 3 times while aimed at them)

Guards are not suspicious of other guards kneeing and handcuffed, just don't do it in front of another one. If you have to kill someone who resists be sure to answer the pager. Make your way around the map doing the same for each guard and watching not to be caught in view of a camera. Once you have cuffed or killed all guards (I always have 5 maximum) and still no alarm you are almost home free. I would then suggest to get under each camera look up and melee it to disable them.

Once all this is done pick the front door and start looting the paintings and throw them in the van, hopefully there are 9 but if not back out to and try again.

The achievement will pop on day 2 after you throw the 9th painting out of the roof in the train car in exchange for the bags of cash.
