The panel is flat and even and ensuring a stable support. Ultraviolet light reveals just a couple of tiny scattered spots of retouching, and there are areas where traces of the old residual varnish over parts of the trees and land fluoresce an opaque green, obscuring a clear reading of the surface under U.V. light, however there does not appear to be any notable retouching in these areas. This painting is in very good, virtually original condition, and ready to hang.
Held in a decorative gilt frame.
The colours are brighter and less heavy overall than in the catalogue illustration, with somewhat less of a yellow-orange cast.
