dated 16[4]8 (1648)
Although signature and date are not indisputably reliable, the date of 1648 is probably correct. The painting's quality, its strong similarity with Rembrandt portraits of the 1640s, the type of composition and costume details support the conclusion that the picture was painted by Rembrandt in the second half of the 1640s (Liedtke 2007, no. 150).
