Carbon dating uncovers forged Cubist painting

Physicists have used carbon dating to confirm that an alleged Fernand Léger painting was definitely a fake. This is the first time it has been possible to identify a fake painting by relying on the anomalous behavior of the concentration of the radioactive form of carbon (14C) in the atmosphere after 1955 to date the canvas.
