The artist may be around thirty years old, dating the picture to c.1684, when Bellucci, a former soldier who trained with Antonio Zanchi, was establishing his artistic reputation in Venice. Later self portraits are in the Uffizi and on the far left of the 'Marriage of the Elector Palatine' (Alte Pinakothek, Munich), painted at the court of Düsseldorf, where Bellucci worked from 1705 to 1716.
