Condition Report

The canvas has not been lined and is securely attached to a keyed wooden stretcher that appears to be of the period. There is a pattern of hairline craquelure throughout, mainly in the sky and visible only upon close inspection. The surface appears to be somewhat dry and brittle in the landscape closer to the centre of the right framing edge and in the dark pigments in the foreground. With the exception of some bands of retouching along the upper and right framing edges respectively and of some small scattered spots of cosmetic retouching possibly addressing some old flaking, all of which are visible under ultra-violet light, this work is overall in good condition and is ready to hang.


Presented in a decorative gilt frame.
