Condition

The canvas is not lined. Inspection under UV light reveals some spots of retouching to the edges, primarily to the lower and left edges. There is some stable craquelure in places, primarily in the sky, with associated scattered minor flecks of pigment loss. There is a small loss to the extreme edge of the canvas below the signature. This work is in overall good condition.
