The following condition report was kindly provided by Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.:
This painting is in very good condition. The canvas has become slightly loose on its stretcher. The paint layer is clean and stable. There are a few small areas of retouching on the left and right sides of the sky near the edges. These appear to address thinness in the paint layer rather than any damage or loss.
