      I don't know anything about how this picture was produced, but I know who it depicts. This is St. Anne with her daughter, the young Blessed Virgin Mary. Tradition states that Mary's mother was an older woman named Anne. She is usually shown in the act of "teaching" Mary, either by showing her a book, or by raising a finger to indicate that she's making a point (or both). Mary is always shown as a young girl rather than as an infant.

      Of course you may already know this (your question doesn't ask "What does this depict?") but I thought I'd mention this in case you don't :) It is almost definitely specifically Roman Catholic in origin and, as you say, very nice indeed... a lovely mother/daughter scene.
