This is the first major exhibition to examine John Lockwood Kipling (1837‐1911)—designer, architectural sculptor, curator, educator, illustrator, and journalist—whose role in the nineteenth‐century Arts and Crafts revival in British India has received little attention.
The exhibition is the result of a three‐year international research project bringing together scholars from Mumbai, Lahore, London, New York, Vermont, and Hawaii. It focuses on Lockwood Kipling’s curatorship of the Lahore Museum, his journalism over 25 years in India, and his influence on his son, the writer and poet, Rudyard Kipling (1865‐1936). Nearly three hundred objects—encompassing metalwork and furniture, drawings and paintings, as well as ceramics and relief sculpture—from lenders across Britain as well as the United States and Pakistan, areon view.
