The canvas has been fully laid on panel. The board is flat, even, and ensuring a stable support. Inspection under ultra-violet light reveals an even layer of residual varnish that makes the surface quite difficult to read. However, intermittent strokes of cosmetic retouching are visible along the right and left framing edges respectively. One small spot is also visible in the mountain towards the centre of the composition. Otherwise, this work is overall in good condition and is ready to hang.
