it is undated but may date from the time of the first performances of Balanchine's 1937 CARD PARTY (to Stravinsky's 1936 Jeu de Cartes)
the original dancers of the roles shown here were Annabelle Lyon (Queen of Hearts) and William Dollar (Joker).
i cannot say for certain that the dancers in this photo are the originators of these roles, but one emailer noted the Queen of Hearts might well be Lyon; the costumes are by Irene Sharaff.
and so to mark February 14, 2011:

I've never seen a photo of Balanchine that showed him with quite this much urbane handsomeness as the one with Hart here. Touch of natural brashness to it, maybe, too.
