StoryLTD launched its auction platform in April 2014. It featured a new format of
online auctions exclusively dedicated to lots without a reserve price. Our no-reserve
auctions eliminate the mandatory minimum price for works to sell at auction. This
format has proven to be popular with many buyers bidding on and acquiring great
works of art at attractive prices.
StoryLTD’s first no-reserve auction featured Modern and Contemporary Indian art
by leading names, and witnessed a white-glove sale. Ever since, we have held art
auctions regularly which feature a range of oil, watercolour, ink, pencil, pastel,
and acrylic works by stalwarts such as Anjolie Ela Menon, S H Raza, M F Husain,
F N Souza, Ganesh Pyne, Jogen Chowdhury, Thota Vaikuntam, Manisha Parekh, Jitish
Kallat, G R Iranna, Dhananjay Singh, Sudhanshu Sutar, Nataraj Sharma, Anju Dodiya,
among many others.
We have also expanded into other categories and frequently hold auctions of Folk
and Tribal art, Bollywood Film Memorabilia, Sports Memorabilia, and Interiors and
Collectibles. In July 2015, we launched Weekly Auctions in these categories, and
will be adding others, such as rare books, photographs, and maps to the existing
roster. Each category underscores the wide-ranging tastes and interests of our buyers,
while representing the dynamic and ever-expanding definition of Indian art and culture.
StoryLTD believes in transparency and empowering bidders to make an informed decision
before placing bids. To aid buyers, we publish detailed condition reports alongside
each lot, and comparables on price points of similar works sold previously. Our
estimates are arrived at after carefully researching market prices and evaluating
the lot based on various parameters.
