The following condition report was kindly provided by Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.: This work has been restored. The tacking edges have been reinforced to allow for proper stretching, but the canvas is unlined. The painting is cleaned, varnished and retouched. Small spots of retouching are clearly visible under ultraviolet light in the sky. Within the landscape and architecture, only a small group of retouches have been applied in the center of the painting and in the lower center of the composition in a plank by the pond. The work should be hung as is.
