Trinity Church

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

Lower Manhattan’s historic Trinity Church is adroitly captured as it looked in the 1930s in this original oil on canvas. American painter Marcia Gaylor adroitly depicts the iconic Neo-Gothic spires and Gothic cross of the Financial District spiritual center as bathed in an intense range of warm, sunlit hues amid shadows cast by monumental Downtown skyscrapers. Once the tallest building in New York City, First Trinity Church’s 1698 completion predates the American investment industry. Still, this ancient house of worship remains a spiritual staple and grounding base of Wall Street. Alexander Hamilton, first Secretary of Treasury and founder of the central bank and U.S. mint, is one of the many famous Americans interred in Trinity Church’s historic cemetery.

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.
