NOT painted by Paul Cézanne - it's a fake

The seller:
I am offering here original, unsigned oil on canvas mounted on board, circa 1890, by the master 19th century French post Impressionist, Paul Cézanne. Many of Cezanne paintings were left unsigned, because he did not feel that they were perfectly complete. While untitled, this oil depicts a portrait of a kitchen maid peeling potatoes. In good condition, this oil measures 67.7cm x 49.1 cm (26.9” x 19.1”), mated measures 77 cm x 59.5 cm (30.3”x 23.5”). Because that this work was mounted on the board there is a possibility that the painting in its original stage was slightly larger.
This Cezanne has an interesting provenance. My late father in law acquired this work in 1961 as a genuine Cezanne from the estate of a wealthy German born physician. This doctor managed to escape Berlin in the early 1930’s with some of his prized possessions, before the Nazi onslaught. He immigrated to Palestine, setting up his practice in the same building in Tel Aviv where my father in law ran his art gallery. Being of modest means, my father in law was able to acquire only few of the paintings from the estate of this doctor. This work resided in my father’s in law home until his death, and has been in my possession ever since. Unfortunately no Certificate of Authenticity exists for this Cezanne; therefore I am selling this work as attributable to the artist. This work was never shown to art expert and it is fresh on the market.
In my opinion this is an authentic, unsigned Cezanne. It is not a print, facsimile, nor any kind of mechanical reproduction. It is guaranteed to be identical to the photographs you see in this auction. Although this Cezanne is over 110 years old, the colors are very strong, and the images vibrant. For anyone knowledgeable in the unique style of Paul Cezanne, the hand of this master is highly visible in this work. (Please excuse my photography, it does not due justice to this work).

Watch the sale:

The seller:
In the bottom corner there is the autograph P. Gauguin and a date that says 1902. I had googled this name and it seems that this artist enjoyed painting island women and girls and that is what this drawing seems to be or perhaps and indian? I also found out that he was french and lived in paris and that is where my father had gone to school atthe american university in paris many years ago. I was told to put a reserve and a higher price on the art but I don't know what to do with it and someone else can take more pleasure out of it than me. I please ask the auction winner to wait until recieving an invoice for payment until payment is made it just makes it easier for myself.
