The canvas is lined and providing a strong and stable support to the paint surface. There is some craquelure to the horse and figure, visible upon closer inspection. Examination under ultra-violet light reveals minimal retouching - some minor scattered flecks to the sky. The work appears in very good condition, ready to hang.
