Shopping for Art in New York City

Shopping for Art in New York City

New York City is an #international hub of commerce, art, and culture, and is the perfect place to jet to when you are thinking of investing in an original piece of art. With its history of being the 'city that never sleeps' and with an over abundance of #stimulation for renowned artists, it is no wonder that New York City has well over 100 galleries all within easy reach of the many luxury New York central hotels. Whether you are looking for Le Corbusier, Sharon Core, Andy Warhol, Man Ray, or an Annie Leibovitz image, New York City has an art gallery that will satisfy even the most discriminating buyer.

Adam Baumgold Gallery - Established in 1986 at 60 East 66th Street, the Adam Baumgold Gallery exhibits and deals in the works of contemporary and 20th century artists. Though the gallery showcases many artists from this period - including Picasso, Murray, and Warhol - a quick trip to the gallery from any of the New York central hotels will also impress you with their large collection of artworks by Saul Steinberg. The artist is famous for his work at The New Yorker; his most famous cover being the "View of the World" in the 29 March 1976 edition.

Gerald Peters Gallery - If you are looking for an original work of art that embodies the spirit of the American West, the Santa Fe Art Colony, or American Modernists, make your way to the Gerald Peters Gallery, at 24 East 78th Street. Once you get away from the opulence of the New York central hotels and into the gallery space, you will be able to see how some of the Classic Western art could fit into your home to provide rustic charm with a taste of the traditional. Look for American cowboy art by artists such as Alfred J. Miller, Frederic Remington, and W.R. Leigh.

Robert Mann Gallery - If your taste in art runs to the more iconic imagery that is often captured in #photographs, then you should have the staff at your New York central hotels' front desk point you in the direction of the building which houses the Robert Mann Gallery, located on the 10th floor at 210 Eleventh Avenue. In the past they have exhibited and sold works by Ansel Adams, Henry Wessel, Walker Evans, and David Vestal. And, if you find yourself pressed for time while shopping in New York City, then call the gallery and set up a private appointment outside of the normal hours.

Lehmann Maupin - With two locations (at 540 West 26 Street and 201 Chrystie Street), it is easy to get to a branch from the luxury New York central hotels of your choice. These galleries are known for promoting the works of international, contemporary artists while supporting emerging talents from around the world. If you are looking for something current and occasionally controversial, then head to the Lehmann Maupin Galleries.
