The work is lined, tacked to modern stretchers and the original tacking edges trimmed. The work retains surface cracking throughout and frame abrasions along each edge. Under UV: there appear to be two small spots of inpaint in the sky; and a few very minor pindots and fine lines of inpaint in the water and mountains at far right.
