Opera in prima tela.
Ad un primo esame si nota un piccolo foro vicino alla firma.
L'esame alla lampada di Wood evidenzia una leggera vernice fluorescente distribuita omogeneamente sulla superficie. Si notano leggere abrasioni lungo i lati dovute alla battitura della cornice, cadute puntiformi sul cielo sopra le montagne alcune delle quali ritoccate, una (cm 1 x 1 circa) sul cielo appena sotto l'angolo superiore sinistro e qualche abrasione intorno alle zampe dei cavalli.
Painting on original canvas.
From a first hand inspection a small hole is visible next to the signature.
The ultra violet light reveals light fluorescent varnish homogeneously spread over the surface. Abrasions are visible along the four edges all due to the frame, tiny losses, some with retouches, are visible over the mountains, one (cm 1 x 1 circa) over the sky next to the top left hand side corner and some abrasions around the horses legs.
