To be included in the forthcoming Ury Catalogue raisonné being prepared by Dr. Sibylle Gross.

The board is sound. Inspection under UV light reveals a small area of retouching (approx. 3cm) to the base of the tree in the foreground in the lower left quadrant. There are several losses to the extreme edges of the board and some general wear and abrasion, including a crease to the lower right corner. There are a few small losses elsewhere to the composition and a horizonal scratch towards the right part of the lower edge (approx. 10cm long). There are some fine lines of craquelure to some of the thicker black pigment, only visible upon close inspection. This work is in overall good condition.
