Condition

The painting is in overall good condition, as is the canvas. A minor repair is present on the upper right, near the edge. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals spots of retouching on the lower middle, upper right quadrant (dark background of the sky), and on the upper left quadrant of the sun, which are apparent only under UV light. Specks of paint loss are detected on the lower middle bottom register and on the sun. The paint layers are in stable condition.
