The figures on the tomb seem undiscernible
Repaired and blanched area round poplars on the right.
Kate Lowry has noted: Mahogany panel c10mm thick bevelled at all reverse edges. Perhaps a furniture panel rather than a prepared artist's panel. No cracks or splits. Ground preparation dark red in colour. Paint rather grubby but in fair condition with minor discoloured retouches in poplar trees at centre right. Figures and tomb are quite convincing as Wilson. The pine tree has strong impasto of white between branches.
