How can I go about getting a good reproduction of this picture?

Takes us in to the mind of the artist. He is saying 'Real life, its details, is more interesting than self-conscious art; the background building represents the latter; the foreground building the former, with its laundry, whisp of smoke from something cooking on a fire perhaps, the unpainted building, the toned-down plaster-derived flat colour representation. This is an extraordinary picture.
