Condition Report

The canvas is lined using wax as an adhesive and tacked to modern stretchers. There is surface cracking throughout though it does appear stable at this time. There appear to be retouches visible to the naked eye throughout the composition, most noticeably along the right and left margins and in the lower right and left quadrants.There appear to be additional, scattered small spots of inpainting in the sky and along the extreme outer edges of the canvas to address frame abrasion.
