The following condition report has been provided by Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc., New York, an independent restorer who is not an employee of Sotheby's:


This painting is lined with wax as an adhesive and stretched onto a non-original stretcher. The paint layer is clean and stable. There is a restored complex break in the upper right of the canvas, beginning in the foliage in the upper center, running 7 inches towards the upper right corner, and then vertically down 8 inches. There are two 1½ inch vertical arms to the horizontal repair. There is a significant area of restored loss in the upper right corner, measuring about 1½ inches square. There is a thin line of restoration of about 1 ½ inch in the center tree just below the larger restoration. There are two other restorations of half an inch in diameter in the foliage on the left side, and one in the sky just above the mountains. There is also a 1-inch vertical restoration in the rocks in the lower left. There are restorations along the entire bottom edge, but these do not interfere with the initials and date located in the lower right.
