why exactly in 1865 Lockwood Kipling a young man of 28 with bright social and professional prospects in South Kensington London landed in Bombay “We may never know the full story” writes Julius Bryant lead curator Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) London in a catalogue titled John Lockwood Kipling: Arts and Crafts in the Punjab and London (co-authored with Susan Weber founder-director Bard Graduate Center) “He embarked in 1865 with his (pregnant) wife for Bombay with all the risks to their health that that decision entailed just on the strength of a three-year contract to teach architectural sculpture It may have been a simple case of economic opportunity of ‘Go East young man’” he writes The story of Lockwood is of interest to the history of Indian art — he was an artist curator teacher journalist and the father of the famous author Rudyard Kipling In London Lockwood comes alive through an exhibition at the V&A titled ‘Lockwood Kipling: Arts and Crafts in the Punjab’ where Bryant maps the journey of the man who documented the art and craft traditions of India for Western consumption “It began as a one-man exhibition on the things he made” says Bryant 58 “It soon expanded into a much bigger story of an Englishman working in India in the shadow of the first war of independence in 1857 Things were going horribly wrong and he was trying to build new bridges with Indian heritage and culture that the British people can understand” The curator who has been working on material surrounding Lockwood for the last 25 years has hence timed the show to coincide with the 70th year of Indian Independence A sketch of a wood carver by Lockwood Kipling (Source: Royal Collection Trust/Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 2016) Lockwood’s fascination with Indian art and design was propelled by a visit to the ‘Great Exhibition of 1851’ the first international exhibition of manufactured products at the Crystal Palace in London where he came across colourful examples of Kashmiri shawls saris from Benaras wood and ivory carvings and so on At the V&A similar exhibits helm the gallery space acquired from V&A’s own collection as well as Rudyard Kipling’s home-cum-museum along with testimonies to Lockwood’s accomplishments such as his sculptures sketches and acquisitions Lockwood’s early career in London saw him as a trainee sculptor and decorator in some of London’s more progressive architectural and design studios “He attended part-time classes at the local schools of design During the 13-14 early years of his career he acquired a range of skills as a designer modeler and sculptor which prepared him for his first work in India as a teacher and a practitioner of architectural sculpture” writes Bryant At the time the West had a few lessons on modern design from India through the writings of those such as architect Owen Jones (The Grammar of Ornament 1856) historian John Ruskin writer George Birdwood and William Morris (whose studies and collection inspired the 2015 exhibition at the V&A ‘The Fabric of India’) In 1865 when he moved to Bombay the city had boomed — new railway lines and cotton trade was expanding He had signed a three-year contract to teach ceramics and architectural sculpture at the newly founded Sir Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy School of Art and Industry (now Sir JJ School of Art) “Founded in 1856 Bombay’s school of art was the third in a new network of British colonial art schools after Madras (1853) and Calcutta (1854)” writes Bryant Several commissions were doing the rounds to revive the Gothic style in Mumbai (most prominently the Victoria Terminus a picture of which features at the exhibition) and Kipling’s primary role was to contribute to the architectural decorations on some of those buildings A portrait of Lockwood’s colleague Bhai Ram Singh painted by Rudolf Swoboda (Source: Victoria and Albert Museum London) Another development in the country at the time was an increased investment in the historical research and ethnographic surveys and it was this scope of research and surveys into crafts and trade that brought Kipling to remote villages across the country He visited craftsmen at work in Shimla Bombay Delhi Agra Lucknow and Amritsar and drew sketches of for instance dyers in Kanpur or the wood-carvers in Simla He also made drawings of looms and tools making careful notes of the processes of manufacture Significant out of his recordings were his series of sketches depicting cotton cultivation in western India which travelled to the Vienna International Exhibition of 1873 one of the 28 international exhibitions he curated “He created a heroic image of the modest Indian village craftsmen” says Bryant It was in Lahore that a significant part of his career was spent as the principal of the new school of art He moved to the capital of Punjab in 1875 to “organise a School of Art in Lahore” “That’s where we found most of the material for the exhibition too” says Bryant The National College of Arts in Lahore and the Lahore Museum still house his portraits The story also steers briefly towards Kolkata where at the St Paul’s Cathedral he designed the monument to John Paxton Norman “In the registration book there we found his entry where he described his newborn son Rudyard and described himself as an architectural sculptor” says Bryant And then there was Shimla where he designed clothes for the Viceroy’s balls and his wife dabbled in amateur theatre at the Gaiety Theatre He retired in 1893 and moved back to England where he worked as a book illustrator and designer until his death in 1911 Lockwood with son Rudyard (Source: National Trust Charles Thomas) The exhibition also features his son Rudyard “After he retired he worked with Rudyard A lot in Kim and Jungle Book is really Lockwood’s memories of India Rudyard left India when he was five and finished his education in England He came back when he was 16 He only lived in India from the age of 16 to 24 Rudyard relied on his father for a lot of character and colour and anecdotes Lockwood is obviously the man behind the Jungle Book” says Bryant Lockwood’s other accomplishment was his final project in collaboration with colleague Bhai Ram Singh (“Who went on to have his own career as an architect” says Bryant) in which he created Indian-style rooms for the British royal family at Bagshot Park in Surrey and at Osborne complete with artefacts and paintings “Queen Victoria never went to India but India sort of came to her” he says For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App

any other competing device on the market (Image Source: Reuters) Related News Apple has made a luxury iPhone that punctuates its technological swagger with a high-priced exclamation point And that exclamation point appears to be a sign of things to come The long-anticipated iPhone X unveiled Tuesday will sell for $999 double what the original iPhone cost a decade ago and more than any other competing device on the market That’s very much in line with Apple’s long-term positioning of itself as a purveyor of pricey aspirational gadgets But it’s also a clear sign that Apple is ramping up that strategy by continuing to push its prices higher even though improvements it’s bringing to its products are often incremental or derivative Among other things that runs contrary to decades in which high-tech device prices have fallen over time often dramatically even as the gadgets themselves ran faster and acquired new powers On Tuesday for instance Apple also introduced a TV streaming box that will sell for $179 far more than similar devices and a smartwatch with its own cellular connection that will cost almost $400 In December Apple will start selling an internet-connected speaker the HomePod priced at $349 nearly twice as much as Amazon’s market-leading Echo speaker Apple is also raising the price of its runner-up phones the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus which will respectively cost $50 and $30 more than their immediate predecessors the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus The premium pricing strategy reflects Apple’s long-held belief that consumers will pay more for products that are so well designed they can’t fathom living without them Apple CEO Tim Cook left little doubt in the company’s confidence in the iPhone X (pronounced “ten”) whose name references the decade that’s passed since company co-founder Steve Jobs first pulled out an iPhone that sold for $499 Cook attempted to frame the iPhone X as a similar breakthrough hailing it as “the biggest leap forward” since the original iPhone But the original iPhone revolutionized society by putting connected hand-held computers and apps into the hands of millions of ordinary people The iPhone X mostly promises to do what earlier smartphones have done only better The technological wizardry in the iPhone X is unquestionably impressive It includes a bright new edge-to-edge screen a special artificial-intelligence-enabled chip new sensors for facial recognition and a grab-bag of fun items like animated emojis that mimic your expressions portrait-mode selfies that blur the background an augmented reality game platform and wireless charging Apple said the phone’s battery will last two hours longer than that of the iPhone 7 In particular the iPhone X gives Apple the opportunity to bring augmented reality — essentially the projection of computer-generated images into real-world surroundings a la the monster hunts in “Pokemon Go” — into mainstream use (File Photo) But rival phones many of them from Samsung already offer similar displays facial recognition augmented reality and wireless charging if often in cruder forms that mostly haven’t won over large numbers of phone users None of which is to say that Apple won’t break new ground In particular the iPhone X gives Apple the opportunity to bring augmented reality — essentially the projection of computer-generated images into real-world surroundings a la the monster hunts in “Pokemon Go” — into mainstream use No one can say with certainty what sort of “killer app” will make augmented reality a hit Whatever it turns out to be it seems as likely to emerge from an unknown startup as an established company But Apple is certainly taking a stab at the problem On Tuesday Apple demonstrate a simple use for sophisticated camera technology on the iPhone X with “animoji” which lets people animate emoji characters with their voices and facial expressions — and then send them to their friends Showing off a new technology with something that everyday people can use and understand is “what Apple does best” said Gartner analyst Brian Blau Augmented reality won’t be restricted to the iPhone X; the apps will also run on hundreds of millions of other iPhones so long as they install new operating-system software called iOS 11 when Apple pushes out a free update next week In a way Apple may have its rivals to thank for this opportunity Fiercer competition from Samsung Google and Huawei increased the pressure on Apple to make a big splash with its new iPhone says technology analyst Patrick Moorhead “It looks like they have a good chance at creating a new market segment called the ‘super phone’” Moorhead said “You could tell they really poured their heart and soul into this” Other Apple devices are also getting better A new Apple Watch can finally make phone calls and stream music over cellular networks without an iPhone nearby and the company’s Apple TV streaming box will now deliver super-sharp “4K” video
