The pigments appear strong and well preserved in this watercolour.
In the lower section of the work, in the water (lower left) and in the shadows of the tree line (at the centre), the blue pigment may be a later addition. In the sky, just above the mountain, there are two very small areas of surface dirt. These are only noticeable on close inspection. There is a later mount, painted to extend the image to the frame. This is largely hidden by the period gilt-wood frame.
