$ 18,500
  • Description
    Marcia Gaylor b.1947 | American Foundations of Capital Signed "M. Gaylor" (lower right) Oil on canvas An elevated view of the hustle and bustle of the New York Stock Exchange trading floor as it appeared in the 1980s is illustrated in this energetic original oil on canvas. Sunlight floods the floor through a dramatic grid of windows in the background, illuminating enormous brass power tubes. Representing the transition to electronic trading during the ambitious '80s, these massive pipelines feed millions of trades worth of data into the computers in the center of the trading floor. The New York Stock Exchange remains the largest and single most important stock exchange in the world since its founding in 1792. Here, the foundations of capital investment are created, setting the standard for all other exchanges globally, an ideal which Gaylor's composition celebrates wholly. Based in California, Marcia Gaylor is renowned for her historical scenes that capture the New York City and Chicago stock market trading floors and vibrant financial districts. Before pursuing painting as a career, she earned a business degree and an MBA from the University of Southern California, and her financial background clearly influenced the direction of her art later in her life. Most of her paintings focus on the economic history of the United States as she captures the financial heart of the country's largest cities. The result is a body of work that stands in colorful tribute to the economy and the power of capital. Today, she remains an active member of the California Art Club, Oil Painters of America, Women Painters of America, as well as the American Impressionist Society. Painted in 2008 Canvas: 24' high x 12' wide Frame: 30 1/2' high x 18 1/2' wide
