George Segal (1924 – 2000) was born in New York. Distinctively molding with plaster, Segal became known, along with Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Indiana, Andy Warhol, and others as part of the Pop Art movement. Segal's distinctive style separated his work from Pop Art by staying closely related to personal experience and human values. He had solo museum shows at the Pompidou, Whitney, Walker Art Center, SFMoMA and the Hirshhorn, among many others.
