Condition report

The canvases are both lined, the paint surfaces are clean and the varnishes clear and even. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals areas of wash retouching throughout the skies in both canvases, most notably in the centre of the former, as well as other small scattered retouchings in both compositions, including to a Z-shaped line in the façade of the church on the left of the latter. None of these are of major significance however and the paintings are both in overall good
