After researching it some, I found it was painted by Vardges Sureniants, an Armenian whose father was a priest who taught religious history.

Nice. Reminds me a bit of Bouguereau madonna and child's.

Really beautiful.

Armenian Church art seems to be a blend between Gothic and Art Nouveau - but older than both.
