The work has probably been reduced in size on the left, right and bottom edges, as cusping can only be found along the top edge of the canvas (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 244).

c. 1655-1660 (1654 - 1665)
The work has been dated, but the inscription is difficult to read. It has variously been interpreted as c. 1654 (Schwartz 1984, p. 264; Tümpel 1986, no. 215); 1655 (Rosenberg/Valentiner 1909, p. 433; Hofstede de Groot 1907-1928, vol. 6 (1915), no. 750; Bauch 1966, no. 409); c. 1658 (Bode 1883, no. 22; Gerson 1968, no. 316; Bredius/Gerson 1969, no. 278); 1665 (Valentiner 1930, p. 266) or 1666 (Heil 1930, p. 383). The Toledo Museum of Art currently propose a date of c. 1655-1660, and the Corpus of c. 1656 (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 6 (2015), no. 244).
