Condition

The canvas is not lined. There is a thick layer of varnish preventing the UV light from fully penetrating, but a spot of retouching is visible in the sky to the upper right as a result of associated paint loss. There is a possible repair heavily glued to the right of the houses, visible on the reverse of the canvas. Otherwise the work is in good condition.
