Additional Details

Small brown horses graze in the long green grass in the distance, in the sunlight between the shadows the trees and clouds make and the treeline beyond this meadow. Mountains, rounded in volume by the striations of the rocks, meet at the cleft between them and the clouds have the weight of rain, not imminent rain, but rain nonetheless. The scene is lush and expansive; the horses, all but invisible, indicate the impressive scale of the scene.

Condition Report

Craquelure throughout trees. Larger areas of inpainting in clouds on the left and in tree area center right above the trees. Long diagonal half inch restoration about 5 inches from bottom to top of hill, aproximately 7 inches long.
