    The work has suffered aesthetically due to the discoloration of old retouches and yellowing of the varnish. The fragile paint layer will be fixated and lacunes filled and retouched. The stretcher will undergo preventive anti-pest treatment. 
 

The painting was acquired by the State of Belgium in 1976 for the Gaasbeek Castle Estate museum. The painter, Jacques Courtois, is known for his sizable historical battle scenes. This particular painting depicts the siege of Vienna.
