Gareth Harris, « New Faces, Christophe de Quénetain, Paris », The Art Newspaper, n° 233, March 2012 :

"The young French dealer Christophe de Quéntain, 37, is shoping to make a splash in the Showcase section with a red mid-18th-century ormolu-mounted, gilt and polychrome-decorated Chinese lacquer side table by Pierre Roussel. It is price at €240.00. « The red (covering) is very unusual and very rare : it was used for the famous bureau by the cabinet-maker Joubert for Louis XV in his cabinet de travail at the Château de Versailles ; the piece is now in the Wrightsman collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, » says de Quénetain."
