NYMEX – Pure Energy Trading

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

The energy and excitement of the New York Mercantile Exchange is perfectly captured in this oil on canvas by the American painter Marcia Gaylor. Initially established as the Butter and Cheese Exchange of New York in 1872, the Mercantile Exchange was officially founded in 1882; it eventually became an important hub for the buying and selling of commodities in one of the most vibrant financial districts in the world. This important venue is brilliantly captured in this original oil, from the chaotic atmosphere of the traders on the floor to the scrolling trade numbers on electronic screens around the room. While the Manhattan trading floor was officially closed in 2016, this painting offers a compelling snapshot of the NYMEX floors during its glory days.

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.
