Condition: Lined, retouch, varnish inconsistencies, craquelure, surface grime.
The lining is adhered with Beva or similar. Fine craquelure appears stable. Retouch is a few scattered small areas (predominately in the sky and top edge of the composition) and a few scattered dots and very small areas (center and l.r.). The work might possibly benefit from a gentle cleaning.
