The canvas is thinly lined. Underneath a dirty varnish appears a decorative image. There is some inconsistency to the surface, like two spots at bottom center. Minor, tiny dots of loss are on foreground at bottom center. There is a thin scratch on the building's façade, between the second and third level, at far right. There is some strengthening to the paint visible to the naked eye on the sky at center right, above the clouds. Inspection under UV is difficult to read due to the old varnish, though it probably has some scattered spots of retouches here and there. Its appearance perhaps could improve with a light cleaning and revarnishing. Offered in a giltwood frame with loss throughout. The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's.
