Christophe de Quénetain has always been passionate about classical art research which is identified by his solid university curriculum –Law school, thesis at the EPHE, auditor at the IHEDN and doctorate at the Sorbonne- as well as in his theoretical expertise, the Ecole du Louvre and his practical training, the Ecole Boulle. He soon realized that even though art is an act of creation, it can only live on by selling its masterpieces which naturally led him to become an antiques dealer.
