Rare Cezanne watercolor study at NY auction
Rare Paul Cezanne watercolor study at NYC auction, expected to fetch up to $20M
By The Associated Press

A rare watercolor study by Paul Cezanne believed lost for nearly 60 years is being auctioned in New York City where it's expected to sell for up to $20 million.

"A Card Player" is being offered at Christie's Tuesday night.

The watercolor was a study for Cezanne's celebrated series of oil paintings titled "Card Players." It was rediscovered this year in the collection of the late Dr. Heinz Eichenwald, a well-known pediatrics expert from Dallas.



It depicts a man seated at a table wearing a hat and jacket. Rendered in hues of blue and ochre, it was previously known to scholars only from a black-and-white photograph.

The French post-impressionist artist created the five-painting "Card Players" series between 1890 and 1896.
