Mafia 3 Vargas Paintings

Vargas was a famous real-life painter from Peru, and one of the most celebrated pin-up artists in the world. He rose to fame during World War 2, and went to work for Playboy in the sixties. Judging by the inclusion of his paintings as collectibles, his trajectory through life was the same in this fictional universe.

You’ll need one of Cassandra’s perks for this, though, so if you don’t want to hand over districts to her, you can just use our guide.

These are only a small sample. We’re obvioulsy not going to show all of them here – you’ll have to get the collectibles if you want to see them in all their uncensored glory. If you’ve decided to get the Collector’s Edition, you should’ve received a print of one of Vargas’ works.
