Property from Various Owners is available to view at the Sotheby’s Greenford Park warehouse, 13 and 16 – 18 September (10 - 4pm), by appointment.
The canvas is unlined, the paint surface is clean, and the varnish is clear and even. There are no major damages visible to the naked eye. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals scattered fine lines and small spots of retouching scattered in the sky, as well as a more concentrated area upper right in the sky directly surrounding the castle. These are sensitively executed, and the painting is in overall very good condition.
