about

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 Pakistan’s 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.

Editorial Reviews

“A beautiful catalogue, richly illustrated. But what stands out is the highest grade of sensitive and scholarly writing that as well as bringing perspectives to the subject, brings to life those times and places – ranging from curating craft to casting techniques to social snobbery such as would have been experienced by someone from non-elite origins.”—Avtar Bhatoa, Decorative Arts Society Newsletter Summer 2017
