    John Lockwood Kipling was an artist, curator and school administrator who promoted and documented traditional Indian architecture and arts and crafts in a period when they were at risk from an increase in British imports to the country. His inspiration to become an artist came from a visit at the age of thirteen to the Great Exhibition of 1851, where some of the treasures from the Lahore Toshakhana, including the famous Koh-i-noor diamond, were on display. After an apprenticeship as a designer and modeller at one of the Staffordshire potteries and serving as assistant to the architectural sculptor John Birnie Philip in London, he moved to the South Kensington Museum (now the Victoria and Albert Museum) to assist Godfrey Sykes in modelling much of the terracotta for the new building. His contribution there is commemorated in a mosaic panel of 1868 over the original entrance to the museum in which he is depicted in procession immediately behind the museum's director, its architect and Sykes (see Julius Bryant and Susan Weber [Eds.], John Lockwood Kipling: Arts and Crafts in the Punjab and London, New York, 2017, p. 39.). His wedding in 1865 was attended by some of the most important artists of the time including Edward Burne-Jones and Ford Madox Brown, and in the same year he travelled with his new wife to Bombay to take a position teaching ceramics and architectural sculpture at the Sir Jamsejee Jeejeebhoy School of Art. Their son Rudyard was born that December. During his time in Bombay he contributed to the architectural decoration of many buildings including the fountain in Crawford Market. He received various commissions from the Indian Government to travel and make documentary drawings of local craft industries and his pen and ink studies were exhibited along with sample wares at international exhibitions in London (1871), Vienna (1873) and Paris (1878). In 1880 they went on display in the new India section of the South Kensington Museum and remain in the collection there. (For an example depicting carpet weavers in Amritsar dated 1870 see Susan Strong (Ed.) The Arts of the Sikh Kingdoms, London, 1999, p. 119). From 1875 until his retirement in 1893 he served as principal of the Mayo School of Art (now the National College of Arts, Pakistan) and curator of the Lahore Central Museum, a role in which he was immortalised as the 'keeper of the Images of the Wonder House' by Rudyard Kipling in Kim (1901). It was during this period that this album was compiled and it includes photographs of the school (nos. 136a, 136d) and museum (no. 136c). In 1877 he designed banners and other decorations for the Delhi Durbar. He also undertook important private commissions in England including a billiard room for the Duke of Connaught at Bagshot Park, Surrey (no. 159) which led directly to a commission by Queen Victoria for the Durbar Room at Osborne in 1890. In 1893 he retired and returned to England where he illustrated several of his son's publications.

    This album gives a fascinating insight into India, particularly the Punjab, in the last quarter of the 19th century and contains images by known photographers such as Samuel Bourne and Lala Deen Dayal, but also by a number of unidentified local photographers and amateur hands. Highlights include high quality images of Amritsar and Lahore, as well as a number of photos which relate closely to Kipling and provide an interesting snapshot into this period of his life. Images of heavily ornamented architecture demonstrate his appreciataion of minute decoration, whilst photographs of his own commissions, such as the billiard room at Bagshot Park, show the result of their influence. A fascinating group depicting the interior of the New York Residence of fellow supporter of Indian arts and crafts, Lockwood de Forest, remind us of their friendship which resulted in an exhibition of works by the Ahmadabad Woodcarving Company at the Lahore Museum in 1881. It is also interesting to see handwritten annotations and some small sketches on the pages, as well as a numbered list in Kipling's hand describing the photos bound within the album.
