    This is self explanatory, just buy a painting from any Art Dealer in both Florence, and Venice.

    You can buy a painting in Florence fairly early in the game, but you must wait a while until you get to Venice.

    There are paintings that cost as little as 50 Florins, so you won't need lots of cash to get them.

    The earliest you can travel to Venice is after sequence 6 after you have completed the bleeding effect.

    Paintings are sold at Art Merchants denoted by the Paint Brush icon on your map (You will need to synchronize with the view points in Venice to find the Art Merchant), the cheapest painting you can buy in Venice is St-Jerome for 53 Florins and the cheapest painting you can buy in Florence is Baptism Of Christ for 280 Florins. So you will need at least 333Florins to get this which isn't a lot at all and the paintings increase the value of the Villa which makes you more income anyway.

    The fastest way to get between the two cities is to use the Fast Travel stations.

    Note: The achievement will not pop until you exit the store cn_B

    Edit: According to LuckyConquerer2 there is a cheaper painting in Florence called 'Portrait of a Musician' 20 Florins.

    For this achievement you'll need to visit the Art Merchant's shop in Florence and Venice and purchase a painting.

    For Florence, which is early in the game you can purchase a painting for very little florins. Venice, which is late in the game will have you progress a bit. (It being the biggest city). But once you've made it to a shop just purchase a painting and the achievement should pop you 10G!
