Portrait of Whistler with Hat probably dates from 1858.
In 1904, Théodore Duret (1838-1927) stated that it was painted in a studio in the Rue Campagne-Première in 1857/1858, but he later changed this to 1857/1859. 1 According to George Aloysius Lucas (1824-1909), Whistler moved to 3 rue Campagne-Première in June 1858. 2 This address, and the technique (which resembles, for instance, that of La Mère Gérard (1) [YMSM 026]), reinforce a date of 1858.
