The canvas is unlined. The surface is richly textured. Minor frame abrasion is visible to the extreme edges. There are a couple minor spots of craquelure including within the lower center of the figure's hat. Some scattered shrinkage is also visible including within the main figure's neck and chest. The canvas is very gently buckled within the neck of the horse at right. Under UV light: certain original pigments fluoresce but no inpainting is apparent. The work is in very good condition.
