Broadway and 68th St.

Richard Estes

I've really love Richard Estes work. Everything he paints looks so unbelievably real. What makes it stand out even more, is that though there are many painters that can create photo-realism so well, Estes chooses such complicated, intricate, urban scenes. He has to have a lot of reflections with the scenes he paints because there is so much metal, glass, and lights that reflect off one another in the city.
