The following condition report has been prepared by Hamish Dewar Ltd., 13 & 14 Mason't Yard, Duke Street St James's, London SW1y 6BU: Structural condition The artist's board is providing an even and stable structural support. Paint surface The paint surface has a relatively even but glossy varnish layer. There are some intermittent small abrasions along the left vertical framing edge. Inspection under ultra-violet light shows what would appear to be small lines of retouching within the sky towards the upper left corner of the composition. There are also some areas of fluorescence within the wall on the right of the composition and within the houses and the wall on the left of the composition. This appears to be due to a very heavy build up of medium in these areas. Summary The painting would therefore appear to be in good and stable condition and would benefit from the retouching of the abrasions on the left vertical framing edge.
