United Strength

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

Light floods the American flag-draped façade of the New York Stock Exchange in this iconic oil on canvas by American painter Marcia Gaylor. Bustling pedestrians appear tiny in the foreground amid an imposing atmosphere of the Broad Street Canyon’s towering skyscrapers. This patriotic scene represents the American economy’s unity and strength as the financial heart of the nation, recalling the marriage of practical financial resourcefulness with commercial innovation.

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.
