Examined in the frame. Original unlined condition. The work presents well, aside from faint craquelure in the tree at right and at center over the horizon; a very few pin dots of discoloration in the sky; and two barely visible 8 inch vertical surface scratches at lower right and lower left. Minor frame abrasion scattered at the edges. Under UV: some faint inpainting to address aforementioned frame abrasion.
