A sculptor noted for life-sized white plaster figures cast from life, frozen in a gesture or pose and often juxtaposed with colorful, real everyday environments, George Segal began his career as a painter. However, he changed to sculpture because he wanted to create objects he could touch and to take sculpture off the pedestal. Most of his figures are white and appear to be bandaged. During the heydey of Abstraction, he held to a representational style, with some in the 1960s calling him a Pop A (showing 500 of 3349 characters).
