The canvas has not been lined. Ultraviolet light reveals some strokes of retouching along the extreme edges addressing frame rubbing, notably along the upper and left. Apart from a pattern of faint craquelure primarily in the lower half of the sky, overall this work is in good condition.
Held in a decorative gilt frame, with floral and foliate ornaments.
The work is overall less red than in the catalogue illustration, and the sky somewhat richer.
