Condition Report: Surface of canvas has areas of craquelure; areas of this painting exhibit varnish bloom - giving a milky whitish appearance. The latter, combined with localized areas of spots that fluoresce in clusters (appearing somewhat different from traditional spotty fill and possibly associated with pigment/varnish) in areas of sky and landscape (particularly at right) renders a completely accurate reading of the painting under u.v. light somewhat difficult. At upper right corner there is some protrusion of canvas and minor surface flaking in part of sky.

The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging.
