Original unlined condition. The work presents well. There is a stable web of faint craquelure across the picture surface and a few isolated dots of discoloration. There is some minor debris in the paint layer. Frame abrasion with associated discoloration is visible along the lower and upper right edges. Under UV: an unevenly applied varnish fluoresces green. There are sparsely applied pin dots of inpainting in the snow near the lower edge and some scattered finely applied inpainting to address prior frame abrasion along the upper edge.
