This work is in overall very good condition. The canvas is unlined but has possibly been re-tacked. There is a slight undulation to the canvas at lower left. There is pigment shrinkage, most notably to the tree at right and to the yellow foliage above the bridge at left and in the center area of the folliage. Under UV light: no inpainting is apparent.
