Condition

The medium is oil on canvas. The canvas is not lined. The work is in good overall condition. There is some dimension to the work. There is some frame rubbing and some very minor lifting in the upper left extreme visible edge, essentially masked by the frame liner. There are a few small losses in the lower left quadrant. There is a tiny spot of accretion in the upper right, just to the right of the cupola, and a little line of scuffing further to the right. There is some fine cracquelure, particularly in the sky, at the upper left. Under UV: in the upper left quadrant there is some fluorescence, possibly retouching, along the top and left edges, extending about 4 inches in both directions and extending into the picture plane about 2 inches. The colors are strong and the work presents well.
