In a letter dated September 20, 2005, Jean Jacques Fernier confirms the authenticity of this work which will be included in his Catalogue Critique par Thèmes de l'Oeuvre de Gustave Courbet et de ses Collaborateurs as Le Moulin de Scey-en-Varais

The canvas is lined. The pigments remain bright and fresh. Hairline craquelure throughout, most notably in the center sky area. There are two minor vertical stretcher bar marks in the upper center of the composition. Under UV light: minor inpainting along the upper right and lower right edge and in the upper center in the white pigments depicting clouds. A thick layer of varnish obscures a closer reading. This work is in overall good condition.
