c. 1639 (1633 - 1645)
In the art-historical literature the painting is dated variously to 1630s (Bredius/Gerson 1969, no. 554); 1633 (Hofstede de Groot 1893A, p. 146); c. 1633/1634 (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 114); 1633/1635 (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 3 (1989), no. A 105); c. 1639 (Bauch 1966, no. 74; Schwartz 1985, p. 117; Tümpel 1986, no. 59); 1649 (Valentiner 1956C, p. 404). Dendrochronological analysis showed that the panel could have been ready for use in the late 1630s or early 1640s (Black/Hermens 2012, p. 109).
