We are grateful to Kenneth McConkey for his kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work. 

The following condition report has been prepared by Hamish Dewar Ltd. Structural condition The canvas has been wax lined and is securely attached to a four member, keyed wooden stretcher. This is providing an even and stable structural support. The tacking and turnover edges have been cut from the original canvas. Paint surface The paint surface has an even varnish layer. The paint surface displays scattered networks of fine lines of craquelure throughout the composition. These are entirely stable. Inspection under ultraviolet light shows a small retouching within the sky towards the centre of the left edge; several lines of retouchings within the sea and the sky in the lower left which correspond to the craquelure mentioned above; some further fine lines of retouching corresponding to craquelure running through and below the sun in the the upper right quadrant, and one very small retouching towards the centre of the right edge. It should be noted that these retouchings are all of minimal size. Summary The painting is therefore in good and stable condition and no further work is required. Please email charlie.minter@sothebys.com if you have any questions regarding the present work.
