The following condition report is provided by Simon Parkes who is an external specialist and not an employee of Sotheby's:


Gaspar Van Wittel, Called Vanvitelli


This work is in very good condition. The canvas has an old European glue lining. The cracking is very slightly raised in the sky, but this is neither visually disturbing nor unstable. The few retouches that were applied have discolored and are now visible in the blue sky to the right of the dome and in the upper left corner. There seem to be a couple of spots of retouching in the large sailboat on the far left, and a handful of tiny spots in the lower right corner. If the work were cleaned, the discolored retouches could be more accurately replaced. However, the work can be hung in its current state.


"In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective, qualified opinion. Prospective buyers should also refer to any Important Notices regarding this sale, which are printed in the Sale Catalogue.

NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS PRINTED IN THE SALE CATALOGUE."
