The canvas is unlined. There is a very light layer of surface dirt. There are a few scattered fine lines of craquelure, most notably to the tree at center. There is a nailhead sized loss to the lower half of the left edge and a few additional pin-dot sized losses to the center of the left edge, likely due to frame abrasion. Under UV light: there are strokes of inpainting to the center of the canvas in an L-shape measuring approximately 8 inches in height. Additional minor strokes of inpainting in a vertical line along the top-half of the canvas. This work is in overall good condition.
