According to the treatment report from Oliver Brothers, Inc., dated Jan/March 1970, the canvas was mouted on a thin sheet of aluminum with wax resin adhesive and varnished with B-72 Acryloid in toluol.

The retouch is primarily within the craquelure. The craquelure is stable but clearly visible. There is retouch to the lower edge of the work plus glazes of retouch to the sky.
