This picture is unlined and the original canvas is providing a stable structural support. The picture is in excellent condition but may benefit from a light clean as the paint surface is a little dirty. There are areas of very fine craquelure in the sky but these are only visible upon very close inspection. UNDER ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT There are small areas of flecked retouching in the sky, probably to fill cracking. This is not excessive, has been expertly applied and is not visible to the naked eye.
