The board is providing a good stable support and the work appears to be in very good overall condition. There are some areas of surface dirt and a small indentation to the board in the upper right had corner, however, this is obscured by the frame. There is what appears to be a vertical surface scratch approx. 2 inches in length in the upper centre of the composition.
UV light inspection reveals some very minor specs of retouching to the lower right hand framing edge and in the upper right hand corner. There are two further specks of retouching to the trees in the upper centre of the composition.
