The canvas is lined, the paint surface is slightly dirty and he varnish is slightly discoloured. In raking light retouching to pinprick losses is visible in the fountain, upper left, and to another area of small losses in the sky by the blooms, upper right. There is also a visible horizontal line running across the width of the canvas, 5cm. from the upper margin, possibly caused by a old fold. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals some retouching along the aforementioned line, and scattered areas of retouching throughout, but no major intervention to any damages. The painting is in overall good condition. Offered in a carved and gilt wood frame with some losses.
