I have this painting that I am unable to figure out the artist and age.

I acquired it in an estate sale in Austin, Texas few months ago.

The painting subject is definitely religious Christian as the "Ecce Agnus Dei" or Lamb of God. It looks it was a larger painting that was cut to a smaller size and framed not long time ago, see the staples on the back. I see some painting on the side of the frame. Also, it looks like it was signed lower left side but has fainted.

Dimensions: 19" H x 15" W (48.5 cm x 39 cm)

The paintings sustained a lot of paint loss and I am wondering if it's really worth restoring.

Thanks for looking and for all your insights and help

No, the subject is not the Lamb of God, but the boy Saint John the Baptist who communicates to the onlooker to seek salvation in "He who will come after me", symbolized by the lamb. St.John is always recognízable by his rough, camel hair's attire.

Not very old, late 19th or early 20th. May have been done for a St.John's church or private chapel. Or given to a boy named John on his first communion.
