American, 1924-2000. George Segal was a famous American sculptor and painter well known for his life-size cast sculptures. The artist was also a prominent figure of the Pop Art movement.

The artist also attended many other academic art programs at the New York University, Cooper Union, and the Pratt Institute. The Pop artist started his career in painting and later developed an interest in sculpture. Segal was eager to create an image in the real world and did not incline towards abstractionism. With fellow young artists, he became a member of the 10th Street scene and created expressionist artworks and paintings based on figurative themes. His best works include signature white plaster sculptures of people imitating different poses in daily life. The historical events and cinematic scenes in his sculptures feature a haunting depiction of 20th-century American life. George Segal sculptures have a brilliant use of white color and life-size scale. The prime elements in his work have an intense and realistic effect on the viewer. The white color of his plaster sculptures alienates and neutralizes the human subjects from their common motifs. Segal’s sculptures are carved with attention to detail.
