Oil on canvas, 25 3/4 x 32 in. (65.0 x 81.0 cm), framed.

Framed dimensions are 30 1/4 x 36 1/2 x 2 in.

In addition to the retouch by the head of the white cow which looks like a repaired puncture or tear, there is also an area in the sky beneath the extended branches of the tree on the right. The back of the canvas has a paperboard backing screwed to the stretcher. The lining shows some minor discoloration on the reverse, perhaps foxing or mold.
