The canvas is not lined. Examination under UV light reveals minor scattered spots of retouching to the sky and a larger area of retouching towards the upper left corner. There is a network of fine craquelure in the sky predominantly to the right of the composition. There are losses to all edges possibly due to previous framing. There are artist's pinholes to all four corners. Overall this work is in good condition.
