Portrait of M. R. Elden (3) probably dates from between 1882 and 1884. 1
1883: According to the artist Walter Richard Sickert (1860-1942), he saw Whistler at work on a portrait of Elden. 2 Sickert dated it about 1883, and a date of 1883 or 1884 is reasonable, given the deterioration in Elden's mental health before his death in 1885.
