It is dated from its relationship to other figure compositions: Variations in Flesh Colour and Green: The Balcony [YMSM 056], on which Whistler was working between 1864 and 1870, and also to The Artist's Studio [YMSM 062] and Whistler in his Studio [YMSM 063], which date from 1865.

Study of Draped Figures is also related in subject matter and technique to the 'Six Projects', particularly Variations in Blue and Green [YMSM 084], which date from the late 1860s.
