Leeds Castle In Spring - English Landscape Canvas Print
This original English landscape canvas print features the fairy tale beauty of Leeds Castle in Kent. This historic castle has been around for 900 years and among its owners is Henry VIII. While King Henry VIII may be its most famous owner, its last owner, Lady Baillie lived at the castle longer than any of its previous owners and is most responsible for how it looks today. An American heiress, she purchased the castle and renovated it into a lavish modern home where she entertained the great and good during her lifetime. She also arranged to leave the castle into a private trust created to preserve Leeds Castle and share it with visitors for generations to come.
This Leeds Castle artwork is based on a photo taken on my trip to Kent some years ago. The English landscapes there were captivating with or without beautiful old castles but seeing the Castle is among my most vivid memories of spring time in England. Beautiful sunny weather and rambling old architecture, a beautiful subject for art! The castle is seen here across the water spring grasses in the foreground and blue skies.
I would love to know what attracts you to this English landscape canvas print? Does this remind you of a visit to Leeds Castle? Perhaps you call Kent home? Or do you just love romantic old castles like the one depicted here?

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
