Condition

Lined. The surface presents beautifully and the colors are vibrant. There is very minor, barely perceptible craquelure in the sky. Under UV: varnish fluoresces green unevenly but remains over the signature. There are a few isolated areas of dashed retouches and finely applied inpainting to address prior craquelure in the sky (including a 3 1/2 inch long line at upper right); a very few sparely applied retouches in the landscape and water (concentrated at lower right).
