The canvas appears to have been cut from a larger piece and glued to a second piece of canvas, with a thin ruled line visible along the edge in places,  a characteristic also noted in New-risen Hope (Tate).

‘Nude in landscape’ is written in modern marker pen on the back of frame and the canvas has been relined.
