The canvas has been relined and is stable. The paint surface is in very good condition under a clear varnish, the colors retain their vibrancy and the work has suffered no damage obvious to the naked eye. Inspection under UV reveals very minor retouches in the upper section and some slight strengthening to the sky surrounding the tower though no further intervention is apparent.
Offered in an elaborate carved gilt wood frame. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
