The canvas has not been lined. Some fine, scattered drying craquelure is visible in throughout; however, this appears to be stable. An area of discoloration is visible to the right of the woman's feet, as also visible in the catalogue illustration. There is one small spot of paint loss in the lower right corner and one small tear, with associated paint loss, is visible in the window of the second house from the right (also visible in the catalogue illustration). Traces of restoration to what appear to be old tears (also patched on the reverse) are also visible in the lower right quadrant and in the sky above the chimney.
Inspection under ultra-violet light reveals some retouching to the aforementioned repairs. This work would benefit from some restoration.
