Customer Question

I bought a very old painting yesterday that someone added a new frame to the front covering most of the old frame. between the frames I found a small black ID tag that reads PIETER DE HOOCH 1623 - 1684 A SMALL HOUSE. its very old. the old stretcher is put together with wood shims. I researched and found this to be one of his works and its a match in every way I just cant believe I found an old master. my question is, did de hooch paint copies of his works, if not did others copy his works in the distant past, are they well known..
