Remembering the Bill of Rights

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

Americans lounge on the steps of Federal Hall at Broad and Wall Streets under the watchful eye of George Washington in this gripping original oil by American painter Marcia Gaylor. The internationally famous statue of the United States’ first president stretches a hand over Financial District workers and tourists, assuring Americans’ freedoms guaranteed by democracy, the rule of law and the United States’ Constitution and Bill of Rights. This serene-yet-powerful contemporary view of the site of America’s first National Capitol and former home of the U.S. Congress and Senate reminds the viewer of the Founding Fathers’ wisdom and values which every American citizen is indebted. Standing in the middle of the nation’s center of commerce and markets, George Washington further reminds us that Americans are free to invest, engage in business and free-market commerce, without restriction based on class, religion, race or gender.

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.
