The painting appears to be in good condition overall. The surface is stable and the colors are bold and bright. When inspected under UV it appears that there are no major restorations. Under UV there is a vertical area measuring approx. 3 inches just above the church at the end of the street that fluoresces. This is not a restoration but rather a crack that is beginning to form. There is craquelure throughout the work. Along the verso there are a few spots that indicate possibly moisture exposure. Wear and losses to the gilt frame.
