A "mystery" watercolor painting by Beatrix Potter, the author and illustrator of the Peter Rabbit series, is expected to fetch £15,000 in an auction next month.

The painting has become a "mystery" for experts because the subject never appeared in any of Potter's books and the painting was never reproduced in one of her books. [Daily Express]
