oil on canvas

unframed: 144.9 x 191.5 cm.; 57 x 75 3/8 in.

framed: 156.4 x 203.4 cm.; 61 5/8 x 80 1/8 in.

The canvas is lined, and the paint surface is dirty with a discoloured varnish. There are numerous small losses scattered in the lower half of the painting, and extensive retouchings to previous losses scattered throughout, with larger areas through the sky. Inspection under ultraviolet light confirms all of this and reveals that the broader areas of retouching in the sky are older, while the extensive small retouchings which are found throughout are more recent. In overall moderate condition.
