The proof is in the flowers: Leonardo da Vinci's Virgin of the Rocks (1483-86) at the National Gallery in London could prove that the piece is not actually the work of the meticulous, always accurate Renaissance painter. While the Louvre version features plants appropriate for a dark grotto, the other has flowers that have the wrong number of petals.
