Dr.Joaneath Spicer, curator at the Walter Museum, Baltimore has confirmed the attribution and she has dated the painting circa 1625/1630.
Prof. Dr. Peter of the Wood Science Centre of the University of Hamburg has made a dendrochronological research of the oak panel in 2015. The panel dates of the 2nd half of the 1630, plausibly from 1638 onwards.
