Federal Hall

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

In 1789 on New York's famed Wall Street, George Washington took the oath of office as the nation's first President. In 1882, John Quincy Adams Ward erected his bronze George Washington on the front steps of the Federal Building, marking the approximate site where he was inaugurated. This impactful oil on canvas by the American artist Marcia Gaylor captures the historic statue in the light of the afternoon sun. Beautifully composed, the work depicts Washington from the side as he gazes out over Wall Street and towards the New York Stock Exchange in the distance. Symbolizing the birth of both the American government and our financial institutions, it is masterful work of American patriotism.

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 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.
