The panel is uncradled, flat and stable. The paint surface is relatively clean, and the varnish slightly discoloured. It is possible to discern a horizontal line of retouching which extends from the right hand margin above centre to just beyond the trees. This is confirmed by inspection under ultraviolet light, which further reveals two campaigns of restoration: the older one comprised of small areas of wash retouching and fine lines of retouching in the sky, most notably above the wagon centre left, and in the clouds upper right and centre; the more recent campaign appears to be limited to a handful of small retouchings scattered in the sky, most notably two areas 1 x 1cm. at the top of the cloud on the left, in a small area in the foreground below and left of the horses, and to a tiny loss in the centre of the upper margin. The painting is in overall good condition.
