The following condition report has been provided by Simon Parkes of Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc. 502 East 74th St. New York, NY 212-734-3920, simonparkes@msn.com, an independent restorer who is not an employee of Sotheby's.


This work is in excellent condition. The canvas has an old lining which is nicely stabilizing the paint layer. The paint layer seems to be clean and is attractively varnished. There are no signs of abrasion or weakness.


There are a few restored losses across the top edge, particularly in the upper left corner. There are a few spots of retouching in the upper center. There is a vertical line of restoration in the upper right stopping at the foliage, which may address a thin break in the canvas. There is a retouching in the lower right corner, and a few spots underneath the archway on the left side.


The retouches are well applied, and the work should be hung in its current state.
