The overall condition of this painting is very good. It is stretched onto its original stretcher. There is a slight craquelure visible, this is most noticeable in the white portion of the water. A small dent can be seen upper right. The paint film is quite stable and the surface clean and free from dust and dirt.
Under UV examination no re-touch can be seen
