In addition to Rembrandt's artistic achievements in painting, his development as a printmaker firmly places him within the realm of history's greatest artists. He addressed many different subjects in his etchings and drypoints, including religious ones. This interest is evident in possibly the most successful print of his career, Christ with the Sick around Him, Receiving the Children or the Hundred Guilder Print. As a printmaker, Rembrandt's unchallenged abilities are well accepted and were widely known during his lifetime. For example, Christ with the Sick... gained the subtitle the Hundred Guilder Print in 1649 because the etching was purchased by a Roman print dealer for that price, the equivalent of 150 gold pieces.
