A solid oak desk by Jean Touret for Atelier Marolles. The desk has four drawers with sculptural wrought iron handles. The late Jean Touret began a career as a painter and then turned towards woodcarving. All his life he continued his aesthetic research by experimenting unconventional use of a variety of materials: wood, paper, copper, zinc, bronze, iron, plexiglass, ceramics and concrete.

The desk comes with the original picture taken  by the professional photographer JeanFrançois Doré, a friend of Jean Touret of this very desk being exhibited at the castle of Blois.
