John Lockwood Kipling: Arts & Crafts in the Punjab and London

Julius Bryant and Susan Weber (Eds.)

John Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911) started his career as an architectural sculptor at the South Kensington Museum (today the Victoria and Albert Museum). Much of his life however was spent in British India where his son Rudyard was born. He taught at the Bombay School of Art and later was appointed principal of the new Mayo School of Art (today Pakistans National College of Art and Design) as well as curator of its museum in Lahore. Over several years Kipling toured the northern provinces of India documenting the processes of local craftsmen a cultural preservation project that provides a unique record of 19th-century Indian craft customs. This is the first book to explore the full spectrum of artistic pedagogical and archival achievements of this fascinating man of letters demonstrating the sincerity of his work as an artist teacher administrator and activist.
