Open Outcry

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

The exhilaration and angst of open-outcry trading is captured masterfully in this original oil by Marcia Gaylor. A thunderous atmosphere of exuberant traders shouting, gesturing and signaling bids on the crowded trading floor draws the viewer into the rowdy, energetic scene with vivid color, bold brush strokes and compelling emotion. Inspired by the immense pressures of open-outcry trading, Gaylor sought to bring outsiders face-to-face with the bellowing voices, roaring atmosphere and shrewd professionals bolstering the international economy. A relic of the past, few stock exchanges use open-outcry trading today.

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