Condition

Examination under UV light reveals some tiny flecks of retouching to the sky within the upper left quadrant, and some spots of retouching to the centre of the sky and the centre of the upper edge. There are some spots of retouching in places at the extreme edges, consistent with frame rubbing. There is some minor craquelure visible, primarily to the sky. This work is in overall good condition.
