“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Paintings and Hyperobjects

I hadn't thought of this. But of course. After 1945 you can find traces of Strontium-90 and Cesium-137 in the crops used to make oil paints. So you can use this fact to detect forged art.

See? They are everywhere.
