This approach provides relative age information only and thus may fail in proving a forgery.
Radiocarbon (C) dating is an attractive alternative, as it delivers absolute ages with a definite time frame for the materials used.
In the case of a painting, the typical supports made of textile, wood, parchment, or paper are sampled, as they usually offer sufficient material and can provide decisive evidence in authentication issues (13, 14).
Thus, the art of deceiving by acquiring an older support is a common modus operandi among forgers to avoid anachronistic features and was already common practice before the development of C dating. Radiocarbon dating has the potential to answer the question of when an artwork was created, by providing a time frame of the material used.In this study we show that with two microsamples (C age gained on the paint contradicts this as it offers clear evidence for a post-1950 creation.The microscale present in the photo on the , 40.8 cm × 51.1 cm.If possible, conservators sample from existing losses or damages. Interestingly, the resulting age range does not contradict the signed date of 1866, nor does it exclude a later creation date either.
It is only possible nowadays thanks to technological advances of the 21st century that have made the technique viable for application to microsamples.
