Yves Gastou antiquaire du futur
Merchant and collector, Yves Gastou explored the outstanding trends in the decorative arts of the 20th century through discoveries and rediscoveries. His career began in the provinces where he gave pride of place to Art Nouveau and Art Deco, then discovered in 1972, in Toulouse, André Arbus. This great cabinetmaker of the 1940s remains in a way the hinge that shifts his taste towards the second half of the 20th century.
As soon as he moved to Paris, Yves Gastou turned to the 1940s, 50s and then 70s, without forgetting the design of the 1980s, of which he remains the contemporary promoter. In December 1985, he opened his Parisian gallery, rue Bonaparte, attached to the School of Fine Arts, in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés with a facade made in black and white terrazzo by Ettore Sottsass. He will indeed be the first dealer in Paris to dare to mix decorative arts and contemporary design, at the dawn of the 80s.
