In November 2000, Saffronart conducted the first-ever online auction of Indian contemporary art, with extremely successful results. The online auction allowed serious collectors as well as first-time buyers, worldwide, to place their bids over a period of one week, as opposed to a period of a few hours. Participants from all over the world bid actively, and over half of the works were sold.

The success of this event has led us to hold it again, which will take place in December. Featured in this year's auction is a unique collection of over 200 works, of approximately 100 artists of Indian contemporary art. The auction will take place exclusively on and will provide a chance for you to bid for these exceptional works of Indian contemporary art.
