Arts and Crafts in the Punjab and London
The V&A in collaboration with the Bard Graduate Center, presents the first exhibition exploring the life and work of Lockwood Kipling (1837 – 1911), an artist, teacher, curator and influential figure in the Arts and Crafts movement. Kipling was a social campaigner for the preservation of Indian crafts, a craftsman whose terracotta panels can still be seen on the exterior of the V&A and was an illustrator of books by his son, writer Rudyard Kipling. ‘Lockwood Kipling: Arts and Crafts in the Punjab and London’ will explore the history of the V&A’s collections through the life of Lockwood Kipling who played a significant role in shaping the foundation collection.
