The canvas is unlined. Frame abrasion visible along all four edges. The pigments are bright and present nicely. Under close inspection, minor stable craquelure becomes visible in the thickest impasto. Under UV light: scattered extremely minor pindot-sized strokes of inpainting in the sky and along the upper edge, most concentrated in the upper left corner. This work is in overall very good condition.
