I have a 3/4 size 'copy' of Caravaggio's Supper at Emmaus.

This answer was rated:

I have a 3/4 size 'copy' of Caravaggio's Supper at Emmaus. It is an oil painting I believe not a photo or other mechanical reproduction. It is exceptionally good copy in my humble opinion. An idea about who made such copies. It appears very old and my hunch is that it may have been in a church at some stage. I can email photos to you. Many thanks, Andrew.

Hi The dimensions are 1,416mm x 975mm. its on a canvas. The back looks like it got some water damage but it does not see to have affected the picture that is noticeable. I just noticed from this back view that it was probably cropped into a smaller frame at some stage in its existence. Thank you Andrew.

Not sure if sent first time as I get no confirmation.
Hi,
Judging by the back of the canvas, your painting is over 50 years old. This was most likely commissioned by a church. Similar paintings in style, age, quality and size are selling for $600-800 at auction and insurance value is $1200.
Thanks,
