Undocumented Cezanne sketch discovered on watercolour
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.”
