Lockwood Kipling was a Yorkshire-born campaigner for the preservation of Indian crafts. He was also a designer and craftsman himself, and an illustrator of books by his son, the author Rudyard Kipling. He played a major role in shaping the foundation collection of London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, and an exhibition there from January explores his paintings, illustrations and furniture designs, as well as his wider influence. His terracotta architectural sculpture can be seen permanently on the exterior of the V&A.
