We are grateful to Jill Marriner for her kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.

The sheet has been laid on to board, probably by the artist. The work appears to be in very good overall condition. Some nicks and minor losses to the edges. Some staining to the extreme edges and light time staining to the sky. Specks of surface dirt and matter. A small circular area of possible treatment to the sky in the upper right hand quadrant.


Held in a decorative gilt frame and framed under glass. Please note that this work has been examined out of its frame.
