Collection Yves Gastou
Yves Gastou was a pioneering antiques dealer who was the first of his generation to exhibit the pieces of design of Studio Alchimia and Shiro Kuramata at his gallery in Paris in 1980's. His personality as a collector became well known through the exhibition of his breathtaking collection of men's rings, first time at L'ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts supported by Van Cleef & Arpels in Paris in 2018.
This exhibition in Tokyo, organized by L'ÉCOLE showcases an array of about 400 rings ranging from rings of 17th century Venice doges to American biker rings of the 1970's, ancient Egyptian rings to 19th century "memento mori" skull rings, 18th century enameled rings to rings by contemporary artists.
This collection, unprecedented because it is exclusively dedicated to men's rings, whereas it is rather popular and contemporary to associate the jewel to the feminine, will provide a new perspective to each visitor.
