    Small correction :) This painting is actually by the photorealist painter Charles Bell, who was famous for his huge marble paintings.

    You can see some en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Estes, mostly buildings with window reflections.

    We had this painting in our art class and my prof said it's Estes. Then I searched for Estes on the internet and found this picture.. - there is a similar one by Bell I think.. but nevermind! Thank u again : )

    It's a Charles Bell. Richard Estes is one of the more painterly (leaves some brushwork) of the photorealists. Bell was just the opposite - a master of blending and rendering. Also, Bell often chose subject matter such as toys, memorabilia, etc., while Estes paints mostly cityscapes. There may be a larger image of this somewhere on the web.
