This painting is in excellent condition. It has been cleaned and has a synthetic resin varnish. The painting is unlined with a canvas stamp on the verso. Crackle is found in the sky with sharp edges and associated cupping. The corresponding area of the verso shows signs of staining, probably from local consolidation of the paint.
