An Early Christmas Present

Who says cousins can't get along?
I just wanted to share this picture. I found it online and I was wondering if anyone knows who the artist was or any more information? I find it enchanting!

It's Bouguereau (hope I spelled that right!):

I learned the name because my niece is an enthusiast of his work, though I hadn't seen this particular one before.

Thanks! I found a link to some other works of his, available to purchase in prints at http://www.illusionsgallery.com/Bouguereau.html but I couldn't find the one I posted. (But I did find my Christmas card!) Do you know the name of the work?

It's simply called "The Virgin, Jesus, and St. John the Baptist"

It IS lovely!
