Do you know who did this painting?

This is The Immaculate Conception (also known as La Colosol) by Spanish painter Bartolome Esteban Murillo (1650). The original painting is huge, something like 14 feet by 9 feet, I think. Absolutely beautiful.

Thanks, I have a degree in art and I know a fair amount of paitings, but there are so many Mary Queen of Heaven paintings that it is not possible to look at them all.
