When artists in the Netherlands lost commissions from the Catholic Church following the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century, they began to paint and draw the landscape and scenes of everyday life. It was the beginning of what we think of as artistic realism, and Rembrandt van Rijn was at the forefront. Perhaps more than anything he loved to paint people: ordinary people, including the old and the ill. (Art Review; Genocchio, 2009). This etching was printed from the original plate by master printers in the 18th century
