    Condition Report*:

    Unlined canvas; surface grime visible in sky; faint stretcher creases along top and right edges; light craquelure, particularly in sky; approx. 2.25-inch tear near far left bottom edge; under UV exam, there appear to be scattered areas of inpainting in street scene, including nearest buildings and factory at far left, as well as a 4-inch horizontal area extending from upper right edge; considerable fluorescence in areas of smoke in sky, but it is unclear whether this is the artist's original intent or older restoration.
