About this mod

Paintings for the Dawnstar Sanctuary

Permissions and credits
The paintings will appear once the Dawnstar Sanctuary decorations are purchased from Delvin Mallory (Ragged Flagon), just like a player home.

There is inherent enthusiasm thinking about the dark brotherhood decoration style. While there´s the expectation to decorate it with visually representative dark themes (which this mod does) I don´t share violence and horrors, so I choose a style and preference to work out its mood and ambience instead in subtler degrees.
Let me know if you have any issues with the mod.

Mod versions: pick one
  • Vanilla - Compatible with The Brotherhood of Old mod and likely others
  • Distinct Interiors
  • Dark Brotherhood - Dawnstar Sanctuary Reborn SSE
  • Juniper´s Dawnstar Sanctuary

The file does not take a slot in the load order. Load before interior lighting mods like Lux and location related patches.

All of the paintings names and artists are in the names of the textures. To view them extract the textures-bsa file with a bsa extraction tool.

The images-paintings are public domain, you can find them easily with google´s image search. Avoided images under creative commons licence. Some sites I used with the open sources are wikidata and Most if not all are from the wiki commons, and with no tags or licenses associated.

To Hq Real Paintings by morganmarz and jet4571 and betterbecause for the frames.
To Hq Frames and Canvas by betterbecause and jet4571, again without them this would not have been possible.
