The size is similar. The artist is unknown but states after Murillo I think is says 1890.I did have a picture attached to the first submission attached to the question.Not sure where the pic went to.

here are 2 pic of the signature. It says "D'APRES Murillo Paris 10" Not sure about the date
I think it means it was painted after Murillo's work, a copy of his.

I really didn't get what I was asking for. The information you gave me I already have through the internet. But I'd like to know is who might have copy that painting in the late eighteen hundreds and what it might be worth
