Question two young girls painting

I don't know if anyone can help me. I'm looking for a renaissance/baroque era painting of two very young girls, maybe sisters? one has brown curly hair and the other has blonde curly hair. The edges of the painting are fuzzy and it's circular. The girls look very "cherubic" with the pink flushed cheeks and they're both smiling. It's just upper body and I remember a lot of red/pinks in the painting. I have been searching all night long. I don't know the name of the artist or the name of the painting and I could be totally wrong about the time period (but I don't think I am.) If you have any idea what I'm even talking about I would love to hear it. Even just the name of an artist. Whatever you've got.

Thanks,
Cade

Thomas Lawrence is not Victorian. The painting isn't Baroque either, it's really Grand Manner portraiture, but I think the identification is correct.

A Childhood Idyll by Bouguereau is also a similar painting that you might like

Default Another search

I am looking for a painting of two young ladies sipping malted milks or something in what looks like a museum cafe setting or small bistro. The background wall is goldish in tone. One lady is dressed in full length black frock, with black hat and ribbon, the other is dressed in full length white/pink I think, and has a parasol and a hat. They are leaning toward each other, and the era is perhaps early 1900s.
