Exact or approximate dating of the described art work; the search parameters adopted for this art work in this database, are found in brackets.
c. 1636-1680 (1636 - 1680)
Dendrochronological research established that the earliest possible date for the painting is 1636, but a date after 1642 is more likely (Sevcík/Bartilla/Seifertová 2012, p. 233, no. 211). As Jan van Kessel was active until 1680, he must have painted the work before then.
