The work has been examined framed. Canvas is not lined. There is a milky varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating. However examination under UV light appears to reveal two dots of retouching, one located towards the upper right corner and one located in the lower right corner. This work is in overall very good condition.

“I went to Nanse the day before yesterday. […] Winter had lit the thinned woods with ruthless clarity. […] Near the walls of the empty farm, I was still able to pick a bunch of those tall thistles that you so often associate with oil lamps, litres of red wine, upside down glasses, in the shelter of the almond tree, near the door, a surprised rosebud showed a bit of colour in the darkness.”

- Jean Giono, Manosque, February 2, 1957.

''Je suis passé à Nanse avant-hier. […]. L’hiver a mis dans les bois maigres une impitoyable clarté. [ …]. J’ai néanmoins cueilli près des murs de la ferme vide, un bouquet de ces hauts chardons que tu as si souvent associés à des lampes à pétrole, des litres de rouge, des verres renversés et, à l’abri de l’amandier, près de la porte, un bouton de rose étonné, qui montrait encore un peu de couleur dans du noir.''

- Jean Giono, Manosque, le 2 février 1957.
