Creating Capital

Signed "M. Gaylor" (lower right)
Oil on canvas

This oil on canvas by the American painter Marcia Gaylor captures a birds-eye view of the famed New York Stock Exchange. Full of dynamic energy, the view of the floor represents the very core of the American financial system, reflecting the liveliness and vitality of both person-to-person and electronic trades. As the world's largest stock exchange, the NYSE represents an important microcosm of global free trade. The transactions that take place on its trading floor mirror the much larger volume of a myriad of transactions occurring all over the world electronically on a day-to-day basis. Entitled Creating Capital, Gaylor's composition celebrates this all-important financial institution.

Based in southern 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. Her paintings are in the permanent Corporate Collection of NASDAQ, CBOT, CBOE, and the American Stock Exchange.
