The painting is in good condition consistent with the age. The varnish is slightly darkened and tiny craquelé can be seen overall on the canvas. There are areas with minimal scuffing due to the frame along the upper edges and corners of the canvas. Retouched spots can be seen mainly affecting the part of the sky and very few at the right edge. The frame is in good condition too and shows traces of usage such as small tears. There are small spots with loss of material affecting the outer edges of the frame.
