Artist's description:

In this paintig I have painted Philadelphia skyline. Painting style is modern and medium is acrylic paints. Philadelphia, the largest city in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, is home to 381 completed high-rises, 29 of which stand taller than 400 feet (122 m). The tallest building in the city is currently the 57-story Comcast Center, which rises 974 feet (297 m) in Center City. Comcast Center is also the tallest building in Pennsylvania and the 14th-tallest building in the United States. The second-tallest building is One Liberty Place, which rises 61 floors and 945 feet (288 m). One Liberty Place stood as the tallest building in Pennsylvania for over 20 years until the completion of Comcast Center in 2008. Overall, six of the ten tallest buildings in Pennsylvania are in Philadelphia, with the remainder being in Pittsburgh.Philadelphia is one of only four American cities with two or more completed buildings over 900 feet (270 m) tall. Philadelphia's history of tall buildings is generally thought to have begun with the 1754 addition of the steeple to Christ Church, which was one of America's first high-rise structures. Through most of the 20th century, a "gentlemen's agreement" prevented buildings from rising higher than the 548-ft (167-m) Philadelphia City Hall.Despite this, Philadelphia amassed a large collection of high-rise buildings. The completion of One Liberty Place in 1987 broke the agreement, and Philadelphia has since seen the construction of eight skyscrapers that eclipse City Hall in height.
