Founded in 1969, SmithDavidson Gallery, is one of the leading galleries in the Netherlands, specializing in Modern and Contemporary Art.
After Leslie Smith, the founder of the gallery, passed away in 1990, his son David took over the business, becoming the second generation of Smiths to run the company. David’s reign over the past 25 years changed the gallery focus, moving into Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary Art. Today the SmithDavidson Gallery collection and program consists out of two main pillars:
Modern and Contemporary Art.
A special mention should be made concerning Modern and Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art. This movement forms an important part of the collection and is one of the specialties of David Smith. During a six weeks stay in Australia, as part of a round the world trip in 2006, David Smith and his wife Gabriëlle Davidson fell in love with this art movement. They came back to the Netherlands with no less than fourteen pieces for their private collection. A year later, Dr. Simon Levie, the former director of the Rijksmuseum, opened the gallery’s new affiliate in Amsterdam with a first Contemporary Aboriginal Art exhibition. Since then, Smith-Davidson Gallery has become one of the foremost dealers of Contemporary Aboriginal Art in the world.
The collection can be viewed at the 400 square meters Amsterdam gallery on the Minervaplein and at two exhibition spaces at Miami Ironside. SmithDavidson Gallery also exhibits at five major international art fairs every year (such as TEFAF, Zona Maco and Art Miami) and enjoys having an international clientèle, including a number of important museums and private collections.
