Victoria and Albert is one of my favourite museums in London. Top quality exhibitions, interesting events, great experience every time! This time I visited “Lockwood Kipling: Arts and Crafts in the Punjab and London”, it is on until April 2nd. The exhibition is on the ground floor in Porter Gallery and is free to enter.
The exhibition is devoted to John Lockwood Kipling’s lifetimes input to Arts & Crafts, featuring his remarkable sketches, furniture pieces and books illustrations.
This exhibition is very complete experience – you have artworks, you have short films to provide with a visual, Indian music on the background to deepen the authenticity. Amazing curatorial work. The quality of display was outstanding and I especially loved the combination of colours on the walls. Even though the exhibition is admission free the amount of effort is not lacking. Small windows between the rooms so you can get a sneak peak of what lies ahead.
After travelling to India it was very touching to revisit history of some places we have seen in the flash.
