  • Condition: A few small areas of scuffing/surface abrasion in the sky. Otherwise good condition. The work is a strong, true white, not as warm in tone as it appears in the frame image.

    Overall good condition, though could do with a surface cleaning: a few small areas of scuffing/surface abrasion in sky, and one smudge in snow below pine tree to left of barn. Work does not appear as dingy to the eye as it does in the framed photograph - color of other images is more true.
