Experts at Christie’s have uncovered an undocumented sketch by Cezanne on the back of one of his watercolours.

It was found on the reverse of Trees Along a Road, which is valued at $400,000-800,000 ahead of a sale on November 12.

A spokesperson for Christie’s explained: “Cezanne wasn't in the habit of dating things. ... but because he would use both sides of a paper at the same time, it brings us closer to the probable date of execution for both sides of the sheet.”
