Dishonored Sokolov Paintings Locations
Mission 2: High Overseer Campbell
Sokolov Painting #1
Location. Before going through the door to the backyard to meet Samuel, look at your right to find another door leading to Kennels.
Go through that door and follow the stairs to the bottom. You will find a bust of Holger in the corner. Pressing the eye on the bust will open a door to the right revealing Campbell’s Secret Chamber. You will find ‘The Isometry of High Overseer Thaddeus Campbell’ painting on your right as you enter the secret chamber.
Mission 3: House of Pleasure
Sokolov Painting #2
Location. Enter the Art Dealer’s building in the Distillery District. Look for self-portrait of Sokolov ‘Light along the Inverse Curve’ on the second floor, hanging on the wall beside two enemies.
To enter Art Dealer’s building, you will need a key. You can get it from the woman you save from the thugs by the stairs at the left of the lower alley in Distillery District.
Sokolov Painting #3
Location. Go to the third floor of Art Dealer’s building and you will come across guards trying to open a large safe door. Look directly across from them, in the room to the right for this painting ‘Daud and the Parabola of Lost Seasons’.
Sokolov Painting #4
Location. This might feel like a drag but it is one of the harder to get paintings in the game. Head down the alley at the start of the chapter and help the lady retrieve the key.
After that, go to the Golden Cat and get the art dealer to spill the safe combination. Once you have done these two tasks, go inside Art Dealer’s apartment, and unlock the safe on the third floor to find ‘Custis, Morgan, and the Postulate Child’ Sokolov painting.

Location. After dealing with Daud and retrieving the key from him, return to the beginning of his hideout to unlock a set of double doors to the right of the window where you entered. After unlocking, look for a chain in the center of the room leading downwards. Follow the chain halfway down to a landing and look at this painting.
