Summary note
Flint Jack was a nineteenth-century vagabond and highly skilled artisan from Yorkshire. He sold fake megalithic axe heads, and ceramic and stone carving forgeries that, despite their lack of historical providence and verification, still populate many museums throughout the UK.00Accompanying an exhibition of Flint Jack artefacts at the Henry Moore Institute in summer 2019, this publication expands on Flint Jack's methodologies, with in depth research uncovering many of his notorious exploits.00An essay by Irish artist Sean Lynch explores the life and times of Flint Jack, making connections between his oeuvre and dialogues of contemporary sculpture practice. A series of drawings by Mexican artist Jorge Satorre details mischievous behaviour by Jack, recalled from his ramblings around Victorian Britain.00Exhibition: Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, UK (22.06.-29.09.2019).
