General Leia art print

I want to buy a big art print of General Leia now that I have wall space, and a lot of places are having sales today for May the 4th, so it seems like a good time, but I can't find anything I like!

I want a big art print of older General Leia, rather than younger Princess Leia. With Luke is ok - with Han is not. My platonic ideal of a print would be this print by Karen Hallion but it's sold out, as is most of her Leia stuff in her Etsy story.

I do not want Slave Leia, "I love you"/"I know", chibi/cutsie art, Audrey Hepburn drawn as Leia (why is this a thing??), slogans about girl power/rebel/a woman's place is in the resistance, cosplayers dressed as Leia, super exaggerated/cartoony art, drawings of cats with the hair buns.

Art nouveau style would be cool but not required. I definitely want a transformative piece of art as opposed to a very realistic pencil drawing of an existing photo. I have seen Megan Lara's Leia print and though it's not my preferred version of the character, I may wind up going with it. I also really like this Leia print paired with their matching Luke print (which is sold out).

I have spent a lot of time on Etsy and I'm not sure where to start looking next. Suggestions for art sites, artists, or even specific prints would be welcome. Thanks!

Found this large portrait style which you might like. Here is another but smaller and with a darker mood.
(I don't have experience with Society6 but they have been around a while)

Pocket Princesses is not your choice for wall poster, but I thought you might enjoy it in passing.
General Leia is an unofficial den mother in this series by Amy Mebberson.

If you have Facebook, this one is pretty excellent, though more a Carrie Fisher than General Leia image. Looks like Lindsay van Ekelenburg's page is closed for now, though.

Jen Bartel has a set of Princess Leia / General Leia prints and the General Leia one seems pretty close to what you’re looking for!
