Oil on canvas, framed. Frame: 84 x 105 cm. The canvas has been re-lined and the work presents some general surface dirt. There are light stretcher marks along the edges and old varnish. There is a pattern of hairline craquelure, visible on close inspection with associated areas of re-touching. E.g. to the sky, upper right and left, minor spots of re-touching to the tree and scattered spots of infilling in the lower left quadrant mostly visible under stark bright light. The image reads well and the work has not been examined under UV light.
