The wood panel support is comprised of two pieces joined from the reverse and there is a corresponding horizontal crack running through the center of the composition. The panel is bowed convexly and retains frame abrasions with pindots of associated loss along some of the extreme outer edges. The surface appears to be slightly dirty and there is mild staining in the outer margins. Under UV: there are scattered small spots of inpaint throughout the clouds in the sky and a line of inpaint corresponding to the horizontal crack through center. There appear to be additional minor pindots of inpaint in the lower half of the composition.
