“An auction is an important trigger as it places monetary value on ideas and objects which most cannot fathom or understand, and in the process inspires building blocks to preserve, nurture and spread the ideas around those objects. It is time to deeply re-delve into the needs of India’s artistic heritage and build something truly great which allows us to share with pride the best of India’s cultural civilization,” Founder and Chairman of Osian’s Group, Neville Tuli said in a statement.

The Sale opens with 12 lots of Rare Books, catalogues and journals on the Indian Arts from the late 19th Century till the most recently published record of the 21st Century. (IANS)
