This is 'A Schoolgirl' by the Liverpool born painter Luke Fildes (1843-1927). His social realist paintings and engravings attracted Dickens, who asked him to illustrate The Mystery of Edwin Drood. He seems to have turned to portrait painting later in his life. I don't know the date of this one, but I like it very much.
