Oil on canvas, lined. The picture surface is in overall fair condition aside from surface dirt; a dirty varnish; and widely spaced craquelure more visible throughout the surface. The picture surface is also somewhat flattened from the relining and there are scattered small abrasions especially in the black dog at lower left, in the goat half at lower right, and in the roof of the house at upper right. Under UV light, the surface is covered by a thick green fluorescing varnish that obscures the majority of the work. There is some minor retouching to the craquelure visible.
