If Corvo drinks the cider sitting on the table by Thaddeus Campbell before going to meet the Empress at Dunwall Tower in Returning Home, the painting "The Isometry of High Overseer Thaddeus Campbell" will reflect that and the table will be empty. Sokolov will comment on Corvo's action, saying that he needed it to draw attention away from Campbell.
Collecting all 11 portraits will unlock the " Art Dealer" achievement.
The last portrait will be inaccessible unless at least one of the side missions for both Granny Rags and Slackjaw has been completed.
The painting "The Spymaster's Axis of Asymmetry" will always be found in the bedroom of the targeted Lady Boyle and thus can change location from one playthrough to another.
The titles of the paintings are all mathematical references (isometry, inverse curve, parabola, postulates, arguments, etc).
Sokolov is rather secretive about the tools he uses to create his paintings, even leaving Bunting, an art dealer, in the dark as to the medium he paints on.
