Prinseps is an avant-garde auction house that celebrates discerning luxury and prides itself on being a research-focused auction house with a par excellence archive and library. The name Prinseps is a reference to the Latin word meaning 'first' or 'foremost', to, the princely states and to James Prinsep, the founding editor of the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. Best known for deciphering the Kharosthi and Brahmi scripts of ancient India, James Prinsep’s diligent documentation and illustration of aspects of culture is reflected in Prinseps methodologies and processes.

Having hosted multiple auctions to date Prinseps continues to foster research, curation, and further discovery within the art world. Following the inaugural auction where Prinseps was entrusted with artworks from the estate of Rathindranath Tagore (son of the nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore), subsequent auctions have gone on to bring together the leading names in modern and contemporary art, backed by strong provenances and publication details. Over time the brand Prinseps has grown to become a one-stop destination for the collector and connoisseur. We welcome you to a carefully curated platform of luxury items.
