Expanded Description:
Photograph the scene in a painting on public view and record accurate coordinates.

Many paintings depict a real scene. Find where the artist set up their easel to take your photograph and record those exact coordinates with your GPSr.

The painting must be on public view. Paintings explicitly for sale in commercial galleries are not allowed. Although all paintings are technically for sale, except ones owned by public bodies, your subject needs to be publicly accessible. On loan to a exhibition gallery is public access.
