first half 1660s (1660 - 1665)
Liedtke 2007, no. 158: "The conception and execution of this portrait and its companion are so completely consistent with Rembrandt's work in the first half of the 1660s that the authorship of the paintings, although they are unsigned, had never been doubted, and other dating (invariably later still) have been proposed solely on the basis of mistaken identifications of the sitters, not on considerations of style".
