This picture is unlined. There is a large 'L shaped' repaired tear in the centre of the upper sky which has started to lift and is visible - this should be looked at by a picture restorer. There are abrasions to the extremities where the paint surface has been rubbed by the rebate of the frame. There are a few spots of discoloured flecked retouching close to the extreme left edge and localised craquelure in the sky - only visible upon close inspection. The picture would be much improved by sensitive but not excessive restoration. UNDER


ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT

The varnish appears very dirty and opaque but there are no obvious restorations other than the one mentioned above.
