Just bought a few of these from an art company in Glasgow and this is their blurb:
Fine Quality Reproduction
This is a stunning reproduction on canvas of the original painting by the above artist. We describe every reproduction which we create as a "Outstanding". You may think this to be a rather grand claim, but with our rigorous attention to detail allied with the very latest in technology, we doubt that you will disagree when you see the finished product.
All of our prints are reproduced using the very latest technology which yields spectacular reproductions. We use only the finest quality 100% cotton canvas which would look perfect in any home.
Attention to Detail
Using contemporary historical information we digitally remaster every reproduction to produce an enhanced image. We have endeavoured to create a reproduction as the artist would have intended his work to have been displayed at the time when it was painted.
On inspection, I was pleasantly surprised. They are good and let's face it it, it is really hard to find her prints. The one I got for myself I am more than pleased with.

During the period 1917-21 Dora Carrington's subjects were mostly intimate portraits and landscapes. This painting depicts Watendlath Farm, near Keswick in the Lake District, where the newly-wed Carrington spent a summer holiday with her husband and their friends in 1921. Among the guests was her husband's friend Gerald Brenan, with whom she developed a mutual attraction. The identity of the two figures in white is not known. Throughout her work Carrington depicted women at different stages in their lives contemplating their own femininity. It has been suggested that this depiction of female figures, dwarfed by a fertile and undulating landscape, relates to the artist's sense of being overwhelmed by her own womanhood.
Original painting presented to the Tate by Noel Carrington, the artist's brother, in 1987.
It was used on the cover of the British edition of Gerald Brenan's Personal Records.
On that holiday, the husband and wife and friends shared the farm with the family that ran it as well as several other guests.
Within the UK, you should receive your print within 5 working days. Probaly a bit quicker than that but to be on the safe side I put that estimate. So if you order on Monday you should receive it by Friday. And that includes all methods of payment listed below. Probaly one of the few places left who still take cheques!
Outside the UK obviously takes a bit longer but currently (2014) they arrive on average within 10 - 14 working days from receipt of order. Usually quicker but again to be on the safe side I give this length of time.
So wherever you order from you won't have long to wait to receive your beautiful canvas.
