Tadema Gallery was founded in 1978 by Sonya and David Newell-Smith in London' s famed Camden Passage in Islington. They were successful photojournalists who ventured into the field of twentieth-century abstract art and the decorative arts of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. By 1982 they had discovered a passion for artist-designed jewelry and showed in the gallery an eclectic choice of jewels from significant designers of the Revivalist, Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, Jugendstil, Art Deco, and Modernist movements. With over 500 unique jewelry pieces from the 1860s to 1960s, the book reflects the forty-year history of the gallery and the superb eye of its inspirational founders.
Based in England, Beatriz Chadour-Sampson is an international jewellery historian, author, and lecturer. She was the curator of the Alice and Louis Koch Collection, today housed in the Swiss National Museum, Zurich, and consultant curator of the William and Judith Bollinger Jewellery Gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Sonya Newell-Smith began her career as a photo-journalist and together with her late husband, David, founded Tadema Gallery London in 1978. Today she continues to run the gallery online and follows her passion for street photography, which she shared over decades with David.
