Lockwood Kipling: Arts and Crafts in the Punjab and London

From January 14th to April 2nd 2017, at the Victoria and Albert Museum, there was a groundbreaking exhibition, curated by Prof. Sandra Kemp, Deputy Chairman of the Society, showing many pictures and artefacts never before displayed.

It explored the life and work of Lockwood Kipling (right), (1837-1911), Rudyard’s father. Author of Beast and Man in India, he was a distinguished teacher, curator and designer, who had a strong influence on his son’s writings. Later in the year the exhibition moved to New York, and to India.
