This page of the Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One guide contains a walkthrough of The Muse From Abroad story case. We described the steps you have to do in the painter's apartment. You will learn how to get inside and what to do to find out about what happened in the apartment. You will receive an achievement called "Perfect Gentleman".
- Artist's apartment
- Artist's corpse
- Bloodstained painting
- Chemical analysis
- Talking to the owner
The address of the painter's apartment can be found in Cordona Chronicle. This building is located in the Scaladio region, in its south-eastern part.
You need to pin specific information to get his adress:
- People - Celebrities,
- Section - Front Page,
- Districts - Old City.
In addition to the man's address, you'll also find a photograph of him. It will be very important for the later task.
The artist lives in Old City, in the eastern part, near the main market. We marked this place on the picture above so you can easily find it.
There, you will meet the owner of the apartment, who rents a room to the artist. She won't let you into the room if you're in your normal clothes.
To get into the room, you need to dress as the artist. You can buy or rent clothes on the main market. You should be wearing:
- loose pants,
- white unbuttoned shirt,
- loose hair with bangs,
- rectangular glasses.
After entering the apartment, it's time to look at the crime scene. Start with the most conspicuous element - the corpses lying on the ground. You need to inspect:
- the man's head,
- blood stain,
- unbuttoned shirt,
- pblood-stained knife.
After examining the corpse and the painting, go to the wooden desk. Inspect the following:
- broken bottle on the ground;
- newspaper in the drawer,
- the painting,
- a stain on the counter.
Then it is worth a look at the painting, which lies on the ground. He's covered in the artist's blood.
There are still a few things to check. Move closer to the bed and look at the picture that lies on it.
A part of the collection is in a wooden box, in front/behind the bed. You need check them.
The collection of alcohols is right by the door to the room, under a wooden cabinet.
In the room there is a small darkroom, hidden in the bathroom. Check out the photo hanging on the rope and the one in reagents.
To start reconstructions you need to mark the correct case - we've shown it on the screen above, so you definitely will not lose it.
Characters should be positioned in a certain way. There are two men fighting at the door. One of them has a glass bottle in his right hand.
Next to the chest, an unknown person searches the paintings. The artist runs towards him.
The next section is a fight between two men. One of them defends himself with a painting, the other attacks with a knife.
After the reconstruction, you need to look at the painting. You pick it up and get the material for chemical analysis.
You need to perform a chemical analysis of the found substance. The difficulty of the task depends on the chosen game's difficulty level. The correct solution is shown in the screenshot above.
Before you leave the room, you still need to do two things. Put the painting on the easel, and then go to the bathroom. There's a skull in the left corner you have to pick up. This will activate the cut-scene, after which you will leave the building.
Talking to the owner
When you leave the artist's room, you will meet the owner of the apartment. You can tell her who you are and that her real tenant is dead. However, if you play it differently, you will get an achievement, Perfect gentleman. All you have to do is hide the man's death from an old lady. Ask about who was in the apartment and ask to call the police. This course of events will also improve your relationship with Jon.
