Sculpture & Reliefs
George Segal is most famous for his sculptures, as he is considered the artist responsible for introducing the use of plaster bandages as a medium for sculpture. He did not use the plaster as a mold, but instead the shells cast from his models became the sculptures. As his career progressed and he gained world-wide notoriety, his sculptures evolved. Initially constructed of only the white plaster casts, he then began painting them, and later casting them in bronze.

Finally, we have an assortment of "Sculpture Fragments" from various decades.
