The canvas has not been lined. There are some fine, scattered lines of craquelure which appear to be lifting in certain areas, notably in the sky, and might benefit from consolidation. Some very small spots of paint loss are visible in the clouds, notably in the upper left corner. Ultra-violet light reveals no visible sign of restoration.
Overall, this work is in good condition.
