The canvas has been relined. There are no major damages to the paint surface. There is some wear in the sky. There is a discoloured restored vertical crack 5 cm from the right edge from an old stretcher; there is a similar vertical crack running down the centre of the painting. The thick varnish impedes thourough inspection under ultra violet light but scattered discoloured retouchings are visible, particular;y to the trees and sky. The lot is offered in a later carved 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.
