The condition is described as ruinous and the surface is porcellaneous with imperfections. Kate Lowry has noted:
The painting has a thick shiny varnish and very dark foliage in the foreground which makes it difficult to assess, however it contains nothing that points away from Wilson. The figures and the tree trunk look convincing.
