The panel is uncradled, and formed of two horizontal planks, the join of which is visible under raking light with a band of associated retouching. The paint surface is otherwise slightly dirty, and the varnish slightly discoloured. Inspection under ultraviolet light confirms the aforementioned band of retouching running the width of the panel through the centre, and otherwise reveals small spot retouchings scattered through parts of the sky, most notably in the upper right corner, and to two slightly more concentrated patches in the central cloud, each measuring approx. 1cm. There are a handful of small retouchings scattered in the lower half of the painting, but these are largely confined to the margins.
