Robert Klein Gallery | 38 Newbury Street

With the ubiquity of cameras and a picture-obsessed culture, it seems that almost everyone can be a photographer these days. But after you make an appointment at the Robert Klein Gallery and see some of the finest photography on the planet, you'll realize that, when in the proper hands, the medium can be more evocative and imaginative than any snap your friends post on social media. Since opening in the 1980s during an explosion in the photographic medium, the Robert Klein Gallery has exhibited many notables, including Diane Arbus, Annie Leibovitz, and Han Feng.

Galerie d'Orsay | 33 Newbury Street

From works by the old masters to Matisse to modern artists, Galerie d'Orsay is more a museum than a mere art gallery. Their collection has included blockbuster-only-last-name-needed stars of the art world. Think Picasso, Renoir, and Warhol, to name a few. You could spend hours getting up close and personal with some of them. This year, they're celebrating their 21st anniversary, and you can help them celebrate by visiting their current exhibition, Jump In! Elizabeth DaCosta Ahern and Helen Frankenthaler, and picking up one of the playful yet meditative pieces on display.

Newbury Fine Arts | 35 Newbury Street

A staple of the neighborhood for almost four decades, Newbury Fine Arts has been the go-to spot for area art lovers who want reasonable pieces from contemporary artists. Regardless of your tastes, you'll undoubtedly find pieces that fit your personality perfectly, thanks to Newbury Fine Arts' extensive collection. Stop by the gallery this November to view some of the moody and tongue-in-cheek works by renowned painter Treacy Ziegler.

If you're not ready to purchase a piece of art for yourself, step away from Newbury Street and visit one of Boston's world-class museums. Get your fix of the greatest art in the world right here in Boston at the Museum of Fine Arts. This vaunted institution has everything from artifacts from Ancient Greece to contemporary art by the next generation of creators.

You'll find yourself transported to another place and time at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum as you peruse the galleries. Not only are the walls here covered in Botticellies and Sargents, but the main building is modeled after a palazzo in Venice.

Speaking of being transported, lovers of world art should head to the Institute of Contemporary Art or the Peabody Essex Museum to view some top-rate international exhibitions.
