I had the same experience. Finished "Chasing Cezanne" this morning and am unable to find a painting named "Women with Melons" by Cezanne. A fictional painting?

I just read Peter Mayle's book "Chasing Cezanne". On the cover of the book were several paintings by Cezanne, but nothing that could be "Woman with Melons". Being a curious artist, I went online to look up the painting and although I have not done an exhaustive search, I cannot easily find any such painting. Having entered " Paul Cezanne + Woman with Melons", I have found several paintings of melons and paintings of women, but nothing by that name. Is this a fictitious painting for the fiction book? How odd! Why not use an actual Cezanne painting. I would love some clarification on this, if anyone has it?
