There are traces of pencil work under the paint, around the windows and door. It is very thinly painted. The brushstrokes are curiously tentative except for the grey foreground, where long squarish strokes give a curiously uneven appearance.
Early photographs show extensive fine craquelure. Different photographs give very different impressions of the painting, and this may be due to lighting, but they suggest that it has darkened. The two figures painted thinly in black on the left have become very faint.
Wooden frame, not original.
