Unexamined out of the frame and under glass. As visible in the catalogue illustration, the sheet appears to have browned somewhat with age. Apart from a small tear in the sheet in the right of the extreme lower edge, and a couple of tiny drop marks below the dome in the building to the right, this painting is in good overall condition.
Held in a decorative narrow gilt frame, under glass.
The colours are somewhat fresher, and the reds more vibrant, in reality.
