THE FASHIONED HAND: HISTORIC FINGER RINGS

The catalogue presents twenty-four rings that span two millennia of history and originate in different cultures. Instead of presenting them chronologically, following traditional art-historical periods, or even geographically, it recognizes that rings make statements above and beyond their historical context when displayed or worn.
