Galerie Walter Klinkhoff

Why it’s worth the drive: This gallery is almost as iconic as the artists it represents. In business since 1950, it sells masterpieces from Group of Seven artists as well as Cornelius Krieghoff, Jean Paul Lemieux and Jean-Paul Riopelle. Also on exhibit are Canadian contemporary artists. If you are lucky, Alan Klinkhoff will entertain you with stories about his father’s friendship with Arthur Lismer, Edwin Holgate and A.Y. Jackson.

Cost: From $55,000 for a small A.Y. Jackson to $2 million for an extra-large Lawren Harris.

Where: 1200 Sherbrooke St. West.

Tip: Visit the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, only two blocks away.

How to get there: Take the Decarie Expressway south. Exit at Rue Sherbrooke; turn left (east).

Hours: Monday to Friday 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Saturdays to 5 p.m.

Contact: 1-514-288-7306 or
