From the dutch government website RKD, that keeps track of all dutch paintings and prints.

I don't know the precise date of this painting, currently at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, but it seems to be from the 1630-40s.

Yes around 1635, according to "Jacob Duck and the gentrification of Dutch genre painting" by Nanette Salomon.

Nice blog BTW Senhor de Freitas!
