If you’re looking for the best art galleries in town, you’ve come to the right street.
Local and international art and craft
If you’re a fan of arts and craft, don’t miss out on a trip down this street in the heart of Back Bay which, since being built in 1860, has become home to the city's best art galleries and most interesting antique stores. You’ll be able to view and purchase anything from debut pieces by emerging artists right through to art from highly acclaimed masters. As just a small example, the Art Newbury Street is home to galleries such as Axelle Fine Arts (www.axelle.com), Lanoue Fine Art (www.lanouefineart.com) and the Robert Klein Gallery. The Robert Klein Gallery, founded in 1980, is dedicated exclusively to photography dating from the 19th century through to present day. You’ll find information on upcoming expositions and the list of artists on display at www.robertkleingallery.com, where you’ll be dazzled by names such as Diane Arbus, Annie Leibovitz or Henry Carier-Bresson. The street is also home to a highly eclectic and alluring range of restaurants, cafés, bookshops and trendy or luxurious boutiques. Leave time to look around stores such as Valentino, Chanel, Armani, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs or Cartier, to name but a few.
