The stretcher bears the words “A. Muller d’Uri, Sherwood Building, corner 57th Street 6th Avenue”, and upper right “Room C”.  The style of name implies a date of around 1889 as the Portrait of a North African Man with a Gun is signed Muller d’Uri.

Somewhat difficult to be certain due to the picture’s poor condition, but painted in emulation of similar pictures by Cabanel, like that of La Chiaruccia painted in 1848.
