La Colombe d’Or Art Gallery is housed in the historic Montrose mansion-turned-hotel by the same name.

More than 330 works by various European artists are housed in the hotel and gallery, located in the penthouse. From abstraction to impressionism, a broad range of styles are represented. La Colombe d'Or gallery currently represents over half a dozen artists living in France, Belgium, Italy, and Spain.

La Colombe d'Or is named for a historic inn in the Côte d'Azur region of southeast France. During World War II the inn became a safe haven for many important modern artists and intellectuals such as Picasso and Matisse. That historic significance is what led owner and art collector Steve Zimmerman to open the gallery.

The eclectic collection of oil on canvas and works on paper also includes artwork by many 19th and 20th century acclaimed European artists such as Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Salvador Dali, Andre Derain, Francois Gall, and Antal Berkes.
