Overview and metadata sections

Segal, George, 1924-2000

George Segal was born on November 26, 1924, in the Bronx, New York, the second son of two Jewish immigrants established as kosher butchers. Segal spent his youth in New York City and developed a keen interest in the pursuit of art while attending local schools and colleges. He studied the subject until 1942 when his older brother was drafted as a result of the United States entering World War II. Segal joined his family in South Brunswick, New Jersey where they had re-located in 1940, dividing his time between learning the trade of a chicken farmer and supplementing his education part-time.

After his marriage in 1946 to Helen Segal (nee Steinberg), he returned to school in New York City in order to continue his already established interest in the fine arts. New York was a milieu of influence for the young artist as the heady environment of Abstract Expressionism began to give rise to a younger generation of artists. Segal joined his fellows both in New York and at nearby Rutgers University in developing, expanding and participating in what became the Pop, Fluxus, and Op movements of the late 1950s and 1960s.

Having begun his artistic life as a painter, Segal was frustrated by the medium and his inability to express concepts of space and reality in daily life through heavy and often dogmatic abstraction. He began to experiment with armature sculpture in the summer of 1958, between posts as an educator. It was not until 1961 and a much-storied experience with plaster-impregnated bandages that Segal found his medium in live-cast plaster sculptures.

Segal's success in exhibiting at the Hansa, Reuben, Green, and Sidney Janis Galleries allowed him to support his family entirely on his own art by 1964. After completing his Masters of Fine Arts at Rutgers University in 1963, he began to exhibit and produce sculpture full-time. He had purchased property in 1949 in order to establish his own farm near that of his father's and built a 300-foot long chicken coop divided into ten rooms, with space for a few thousand hens. These coops would become his studio and gallery spaces for the duration of his career which, coupled with the environment of his family farm, became not only a hallmark of Segal's artistic activity but of the intimate and friendly atmosphere intrinsic to the man.

Segal continued to sculpt through the 1970s, experimenting with new materials and forms such as bas-reliefs, fragments, and an internal casting method using hydrostone that came to define his later work. In 1976, Segal created his first public commission of a work in bronze, a turning point in his career that would bring much attention and publicity to his bronzes, both public and privately commissioned, from that point on. Segal became famous both for those public works that engendered great controversy, such as Abraham and Isaac – In Memory of May 4, 1970 located at Princeton University, as well as those works so significant that they became known on a national level, as in the case of the sculptures created for the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Segal returned to drawing and sketching in the 1980s and 1990s, also taking time to experiment with small projects and becoming active in certain organizations. In the early 1980s Segal began a serious pursuit of fine photography, documenting those environments in New York and New Jersey that had influenced the creation of many of his sculptural environments. These pursuits, old and new, continued along with his sculpting until 1999. George Segal died on June 9, 2000 at the age of 75. He was survived by his wife Helen and their two children, Jeffrey and Rena.

Awards and Honors Chronology adapted from information provided courtesy of The George and Helen Segal Foundation.

The George Segal Papers document over sixty years of the artist's life and include materials relating to almost every aspect of his creative work: photography, exhibitions, critical reception, activity within the art world, and personal interests beyond that of sculpture. The collection includes artwork, photographic prints and slides, negatives, handwritten and typed correspondence, book drafts and articles, audio and visual media, notebooks and early school assignments, photocopied newspaper clippings, exhibition catalogs and posters, and the photography of Donald Lokuta.

One of the most unique aspects of the collection is a series of artwork produced by Segal during his early education as an artist. These sketches and paintings in a variety of media highlight the heretofore unknown development of Segal's approach before and during his establishment as a major artist and feature many themes that prefigure his later work in sculpture, including sensuality and urban environments.

The bulk of the collection (and also representing a rarely seen aspect of Segal's art) is a collection of photographic prints produced over the course of some sixteen years towards the end of Segal's life. These prints chronicle Segal's interest in photography and his fascination with the environs immediately surrounding his home in South Brunswick, New Jersey, as well as New York City and cities abroad.

A large part of the collection consists of business files on a variety of topics that span Segal's entire career. Rich in information and opinion, this material provides a wide and varied portrait of the man as well as the artist, lending particular insight into the interpersonal relationships Segal had with family and friends (often used as models in his sculpture). This is demonstrated by personal correspondence and intimate photographs present in the collection.

At the same time, Segal was very active in regard to creating, exhibiting and speaking about his own artwork evidenced by the bulk of business correspondence relating to the production and exhibition of his work, numerous photographs of Segal sculpting, decade's worth of interviews and awards recorded on visual and audio media, and over fifty years of newspaper and magazine clippings that trace his career and celebrity. Segal's personal and other artistic interests are reflected in the causes he was a part of, the projects and commissions he was involved in, and the photography he created.

The collection is organized into ten major series with additional subdivisions.

Files, photographs, and artwork were gathered from the Segal home, office, and studio.

Collection Inventory

Scope and Contents

This series contains works of art created by George Segal in a variety of mediums (ink, watercolor, tempera, pencil, charcoal, conté crayon) and on a variety of supports (paper, board, cloth) dating principally from the time of his education in the 1940s, but including works rendered over the course of his entire life until his death in 2000. Artwork is comprised mainly of loose, single sheets of paper, bound sketchbooks, or compiled illustrated assignments. There are also multiple prints produced from single, original engravings. The bulk of the work dates from Segal's time as a student at Cooper Union, Rutgers University, Pratt Institute, and New York University, from 1941 to 1949.

Chronology was considered particularly important for the development of the artist's style and his influences. However, very few dates exist. Inclusive dates were assigned on the file-level based on a variety of factors, including content, style and context. The vast majority of all work broadly dated from the 1940s to the 1960s is in fact only from the 1940s, as the direct result of Segal's college-level art studies from 1941 to 1949. Some sketchbooks have been individually labeled with approximate (but more specific) dates.

Researchers can reference the Education Chronology in order to help date artworks known or thought to have been produced for certain classes or institutions. Additional files, notebooks and documents in Series 7: Education and Early Career are directly related to these materials, and can be referenced for more information.

Finally, due to the creative nature of any artist it should be noted that, despite specific folder titles, doodles, sketches, and works of art are rendered in multiple mediums and are found everywhere throughout the series and — for the most comprehensive consideration — everywhere in the collection. Segal doodled in the margins of notebooks, on the back of napkins, and even on some correspondence and other documents. He also kept the doodles and sketches of friends and colleagues. Moreover, Segal would create more than one artwork in more than one medium on the same support. An effort has been made to separate and organize these materials, but the arrangement is inherently limited in scope.

Arrangement

Arranged chronologically into three subseries.

Physical Description

17.0 linear feet

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of materials that can be definitively dated to the time of Segal's education and are known, with reasonable certainty, to have been created as the result of assignments and projects. Most of the material dates from 1947 to 1949, and contains artwork originally matted for presentation. A number of sketchbooks and original prints are also included.

The subdivision Illustrated Assignments dates from Segal's one academic year at Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, New York), from Fall 1947 to Spring 1948, and contains scrapbook-like projects compiled for assignments. Although they resemble reports, many pages are illustrated both for decoration and demonstration and therefore have been considered artwork for the sake of this arrangement. Artistic elements — rendered on paper in a variety of mediums including ink, watercolor, oil, and tempera — have been kept in their original order within the assignment, with conservation concerns addressed page by page.

Most loose artwork (generally on paper) is housed in protective enclosures. File notes that mention 11x14, 16x20, and 21x25 inch enclosures actually range in size from just a few inches to the size of the enclosure itself.

Physical Description

1 folder

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of works that clearly date to Segal's formative years as both a student and an artist, but which generally lack dates that would inform a more specific consideration. It is possible to roughly date individual works and sketchbooks on an item-by-item level by comparing the subject, medium, style, and theme to other works that are dated, assignments that Segal may have been following as part of his education, or by observing creative trends in his style. As is the case with most of the material in this series, artwork dates primarily from the 1940s.

Most loose artwork (generally on paper) is housed in protective enclosures. File notes that mention 11x14, 16x20, and 21x25 inch enclosures actually range in size from just a few inches to the size of the enclosure itself.

Physical Description

1 folder

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of artwork either known or thought to date from the period after Segal's early formal instruction, during the maturing of his oeuvre, and thereafter until the end of his life. The arrangement reflects informed decisions based on style, context, materials, and the original location of some of the work.

Notable themes and imagery in this subseries include sketches made at Provincetown, Rhode Island, where Segal was exposed to the work of Hans Hofmann; abstract and expressionist themes developed in the 1950s and evidence of a strict departure from the earlier styles Segal embraced as a student; and later sketches of intimate friends and associates, including Pierre Restany. Finally, there are doodles and small illustrated notes as well as small-format sketchbooks, which record idle or somehow casual moments of creativity.

The contents of Folders 4 through 7 in Box 5A originated from a folder originally kept with Series 3: Business Files.

1 folder

Scope and Contents

This series contains prints, negatives, slides and transparencies of Segal's fine photography spanning thirty years, with the bulk of the series dating to a period of focused activity from 1984 to 1999. The series can be considered the result of two distinct periods in Segal's creative life: a long-time interest in fine photography without a disciplined or specific approach, from 1966 to 1983; and an active and informed pursuit of the subject, from 1984 to 2000.

Segal's early interest in photography influenced the creation of certain environments used in his early sculpture. These themes include highway and industrial scenes from around his home in South Brunswick, New Jersey and are represented by the earliest materials in this series. While Segal long had an interest in photography it was not until 1984 that Segal began to engage in it as an art form. Segal was displeased with the prints of his photographs taken in Egypt and Israel in 1983, and sought the advice of Donald Lokuta, Professor of Photography at Kean University. The original and subsequent experimental prints are included in this series and mark a turning point in the artist's focus. Until the time of his death in 2000, Segal went on to produce the bulk of this series, an estimated 5,000-6,000 prints and 10,000 negatives in collaboration with Lokuta who continued to photograph with him, share insights, and make archival-quality prints of Segal's photographs.

Researchers should note that the photography of Segal's collaborator make up Series 10: Donald Lokuta Photographs, and many prints are present in that series of Segal making the photographs that are included in this series.

Arrangement

This series is arranged into three subseries.

Physical Description

21.0 linear feet

Scope and Contents

This subseries is comprised of photographic prints and slides that represent not only Segal's fine photography but the selective process he used to cull his best work. Descriptions given in the notes reflect the rating and grouping of these prints according to Segal's own estimation, including "very good" and "bad." These selections eventually culminated in the 1994 exhibition "Sequence: New York / New Jersey, 1990 – 1993" at the Howard Greenburg Gallery, which went on to France and California.

Some main themes include portraits taken at The Training School at Vineland, photographic studies of slaughtered veal, still-lifes, hands, urban scenes (storefront windows, graffiti, the homeless), the Jersey Shore, diner scenes, friends and family. Identifiable portraits include Helen Segal, Rena Segal, Jeffrey Segal, Pierre Restany, Donald Lokuta, Matteo Lorenzelli, Leon Bibel and Carroll Janis. Many of these prints became pastel sketches in the 1990s and the 1990s: Loose Photographs files have original context that suggest they were used in Segal's other artwork.

Urban and Jersey Shore environments include New Brunswick, South River, Asbury Park, Newark (Ironbound Section), Elizabeth, Seaside Heights and Keansburg, New Jersey ; other scenes from the neighborhoods and boroughs of Manhattan (Times Square, East Village, SoHo, Port Authority Bus Terminal), Brooklyn (Coney Island) and the Bronx, New York. Other cities and countries include Moscow, Russia; Berlin, Germany; Venice, Italy; London, England; Cairo, Giza, Aswan, Egypt; Jerusalem, Galilee, Tel Aviv, Israel.

It should be noted that the arrangement of these photographs within Segal's studio was a bit chaotic; original selections and groupings may have become disorganized over time. Folder titles are derived from handwritten information left by Segal on photograph boxes and the prints themselves; where dates were grossly in error the folder titles will contradict the hand-written information.

Many photographs have date or technical information handwritten on the back, along with captions; most are unlabeled. Very few folder titles will completely and accurately describe the contents of the group. Segal moved and sorted most prints into discreet groups based on subjective decisions rather than concrete dates, locations, subjects or themes.

For additional dating and context information of a particular year or photographic group, reference Subseries 2C: Sleeved Negatives and Contact Sheets.

Physical notes: Photographs are bound between layers of archival board and preservation mylar. Researchers are asked to take care when returning materials to their folder that the mylar sheets are placed between the stack of photographs and the archival board, on top of the first print and beneath the last print. Secure the ribbon with a simple bow.

Scope and Contents

Physical Description

1 box

Scope and Contents

This subseries is comprised of three-ring archival negative pages (sleeved) interleaved with their respective contact sheets (unsleeved) in their original order. Almost all of this material is black-and-white and color negatives are indicated when present. Some of the earliest (1983) and latest negatives (1999) were separated from other materials and added to the arrangement.

In its entirety this subseries represents the chronological order of fine art photographs as taken by the artist and is the best resource available for dating many of the loose, undated, and misdated prints located in Subseries 2A: Prints and Slides. A few of the negative sleeves include annotations by Segal, such as location or month. Some prints are interleaved along with the contact sheets and most often indicate experiments in processing, especially in the case of the Egypt and Israel prints from 1983.

The bulk of the negatives (from 1984 to 2000) correspond to the time of creative cooperation with Donald Lokuta, and the contact sheets and print experiments were all developed by him. It should be noted that the 1983 folder is from before this collaboration, as those negatives had originally been stored with their prints in paper envelopes, now housed in the Subseries 2A: Prints and Slides. After 1983 and his collaboration with Lokuta, the artist formed the bulk of this subseries in binders with sleeves, and included contact sheets with the negatives.

Physical note: In some cases photographic prints and contact sheets are interleaved with their respective sleeved negative sheets. Researchers are asked to take care to preserve this arrangement while using the relevant files.

Scope and Contents

This series consists of correspondence, invoices, contracts, receipts, photographs, clippings, and sketches relating to the commissioning of sculpture and artwork, production of sculpture and artwork, arrangement of exhibitions, and participation in organizations and events.

The creators of the files, both George and Helen Segal, established two distinct ways of record-keeping over the course of Segal's lifetime: Segal organized files dating between the 1950s and 1976 by year, no matter the content, subjects, or correspondence contained therein; while material that dates from 1977 to 2006 was organized both by year and by subject. This shift in organization may have resulted from Segal's first public commissions in the late 1970s, as new materials such as contracts, commission proposals, and accounting information necessitated a different approach to record keeping. Materials that were found in Segal's studio and household after the original donation and arrangement of the bulk of the papers exist in distinct subseries based on the groupings in which they were found.

A true reading of the series will require perusal of multiple subseries, since Segal's correspondence usually related to a variety of topics and was addressed to many parties, including family, friends, and business contacts with whom Segal developed personal relationships. Very few of the files were strictly managed: exhibition correspondence is included in Subseries 3B: Business Correspondence by Year, personal correspondence is present across the entire series, and subject-specific correspondence can exist outside its subject file. Researchers are advised to consider the dates of the information (when known or relevant) and reference all files corresponding to those dates for the most comprehensive approach within the series (and the collection).

There is considerable correspondence with Gordon Hyatt, Pierre Restany, Martin Friedman, Phyllis Tuchman, Jan van der Marck, Vaughn Kaprow (Vaughn Rachel), Peter Putnam, Theodor Kollek, and Frederick R. Weisman.

Notable if less frequent correspondents include Marcel Duchamp, Walter De Maria, Robert Whitman, Robert Scull, Jasper Johns, Billy Klüver, Mark di Suvero, Ivan Boesky, Richard (Dick) Bellamy, Ileana Sonnabend, Sidney Delevante, Charles Martin Simon (Charlie Nothing), Maximilian Schell, Peter B. Lewis, Joan Mondale, and Jill Johnston.

Arrangement

Series is arranged into seven subseries with additional subdivisions.

Physical Description

23 linear feet

Scope and Contents

This subseries is further organized into three divisions:

Bronzes and Commissions contains contracts, correspondence, invoices, clippings, research, technical information and receipts relating to the commission, design, shipping, installation and critical and public reception of those sculptures and artworks that were commissioned by various parties. This division is notable for the inclusion of a number of files on Segal's most famous and most often controversial public sculptures. These include Abraham and Isaac - In Memory of May 4, 1970, Gay Liberation, The Holocaust, and the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial with its three sculptures: Depression Breadline, Fireside Chat, and Appalachian Farm Couple 1936.

Folder titles are arranged alphabetically by sculpture or name of artwork, along with the persons or corporate body responsible for the commission when known.

Projects, Editions and Proposals contains files that are concerned with the production of artwork that is either not rendered in Segal's usual figurative style or proposals for such sculptures that were rejected or otherwise did not come to fruition. Projects and editions are typically small ideas of interest that appealed to Segal but that did not form a large part of his oeuvre, while the proposals were ideas for public commissions or private portraits that for various reasons were not created.

Technical Files are comprised of subject files of detailed information on casting and patination as provided by foundries, records of repair performed on various sculptures, and the records pertaining to Segal's molds and casts at the Johnson Atelier. Researchers seeking casting or repair records of a particular sculpture should note that documentation along these lines is included elsewhere in the collection and are therefore encouraged to reference relevant subject files in Subseries 3A: Sculpture and Artwork, Subseries 3C: Business Correspondence by Subject, and Subseries 3D: Exhibitions.

Scope and Contents

This subseries is the most substantial of the Business Files series. The papers are chiefly concerned with business arrangements, which include the organization and preparation of exhibits, invitations and correspondence relating to lectures and symposia, travel arrangements, and the scheduling of studio tours and visits. There is also a great deal of personal correspondence with friends, family, and professional contacts with which Segal developed personal relationships. These materials often relate Segal's candid opinions on his business dealings, his own work, family matters, and life in general. Finally, there is correspondence from admirers and students, some of which goes on over a period of many years. Photographs, when present, are indicated in the file notes.

Personal names of interest have been included in the file notes.

In some cases, files will overlap dates within a year (for example: Business Correspondence, January 13 – March 10, 1970 and Business Correspondence, March 1 – March 25, 1970). This arrangement reflects the original order of the creator, as Segal would staple or group related correspondence and materials together. When this is the case, the group of documents is filed by the earliest dated piece of correspondence in the group. Researchers interested in correspondence from certain years should note whether or not that time frame is indicated in another file.

Additional business correspondence files are located in Series 11: Additional Material. Those materials fill the gap between 1971-1990 reflected in this subseries.

In addition, there is accounting and invoice information from shipping agencies and museums regarding the transportation, sale, or donation of artworks.

Researchers should note that many of the topics and types of material represented by this subseries are also represented in Subseries 3C: Business Correspondence by Year and that the two subseries are not mutually exclusive. Researchers interested in a particular subject represented by these files are advised to reference those files in Subseries 3C that correspond to the relevant time period.

Physical Description

1 folder

Scope and Contents

This subseries contains subject files arranged by the artist of material relating to major and minor exhibitions. Segal's work was featured in over one hundred one-man exhibitions and over three hundred group exhibitions within his lifetime. Segal himself was often involved in the preparation, arrangement, lending, installation and shipping of his artwork and thus kept files containing the correspondence, invoicing, insurance, check-lists and photographs that would correspond to these large and often long-term engagements. He would also provide interviews for catalog texts and subsequently edit them. Thus the content of these files is varied and includes travel arrangements, financial accounting information, shipping invoices, correspondence with various institutions and private individuals, catalog texts, photographs, records of repair, and tourist materials.

This subseries is not comprehensive. Researchers interested in a particular show or correspondent should reference files in 3C: Business Correspondence by Year dated at least a year prior and a year after the opening date of a specific exhibition, or for information on exhibits not listed here.

Folder titles are derived from the name of the host institution and the year in which the show opened.

Scope and Contents

This subseries contains oversized site, elevation, and floorplans that date from 1957 to 1998, but correspond to projects and exhibitions that took place from the 1970s to 1998. In the preparation stages of almost all of Segal's important public commissions one or more site plans or elevations would be provided or drawn in order to facilitate the installation of the sculpture(s). In addition to this, the planning of large-scale exhibition installations, especially those requiring input directly from Segal himself would also require oversized gallery plans.

These and other materials were separated from their relevant files for preservation reasons and included in this subseries. Separation sheets were put in place in order to indicate when an oversized document was removed to this subseries.

For clarity, the following terms have been included: Gallery plan is a plan that depicts the floorplan of a gallery with dimensions; installation plan is a plan that depicts the floorplan of a gallery along with notations for the placement of sculpture and artwork; elevation is a plan that depicts the vertical dimensions of a site; site plan is a plan that depicts the dimensions of an installation site that is not a gallery.

Physical notes: This subseries is housed in a large oversized box. Researchers are asked to secure an area appropriate for the proper handling of these large materials.

Physical Description

1 folder

Scope and Contents

This series is comprised of photographic prints, negatives, slides and transparencies of Segal, Segal's sculpture and artwork, Segal at work in his studio, exhibition installations and gallery photographs, studio tours, and friends and family. The files range from a single subject, such as sitting portraits of Segal, to multiple subjects, events, and people.

Owing to both the unique nature of Segal's technique and his absolute willingness to have himself and his studio photographed, this series has an interesting array of photographs of his life and work. Segal's casting sessions would last a matter of hours and was a relatively simple artistic process to photograph. At the same time, models and visitors to the studio were very interested in preserving the memory of their experience. As a result, there are many photographs highlighting this process and the studio space.

This series differs from Series 2: Fine Photography even though some of the photographs present were taken by Segal himself and the subjects (such as views of his own sculpture) are similar. This arrangement reflects both the physical separation of the materials as originally arranged by the artist, and their intellectual content. Series 5: Photographs is chiefly concerned with the artist and the creation of his work and was originally kept with Series 3: Business File, while Series 2: Fine Photography is a creation of the artist and was located in his studio.

This series includes photographs by Donald Lokuta, some of which are duplicated in Series 10: Donald Lokuta Photographs. Photographs included in this series were in the possession of George Segal, while prints in Series 10 were an addition to the George Segal Papers from the photographer's own collection.

Credit given these prints, contact sheets and transparencies is not always clear. It is apparent in most cases that Segal had his prints developed by photographer friends, including D. James Dee and Donald Lokuta, whose photographs also appear in the series and sometimes alongside prints that appear to be attributed to Segal himself.

Photographers include Arnold Newman, Hans Namuth, David Gahr, D. James Dee (The Soho Photographer Inc.), Nancy Astor, Donald Lokuta, Wouter Deruytter, Pepe Diniz, Renata Ponsold, Vera Isler-Leiner, and Dino Pedriali.

Identifiable persons in the series include Helen, Rena and Jeffrey Segal, Lucas Samaras, Sam Hunter, Michael Blackwood, Martin Weyl, Walter Gutman, Robert Rauschenberg, Donald Lokuta, and Miles Forst.

Arrangement

This series is arranged into five subseries with additional subdivisions.

Physical Description

4.0 linear feet

Scope and Contents

This subseries is further organized into three divisions, all of which contain photographic prints, slides and transparencies that have to do with the production of Segal's sculpture and artwork. Both Sculpture and Painting and Drawing are relatively small groups that most notably include some early photographs by Segal of his own work, including a Polaroid of the first version of The Gas Station (1964). Casting and The Studio is comprised of photographs that document George Segal at work and the space in which he worked. Subjects include casting sessions with models, studio tours given to family, friends and groups, construction and manipulation of plaster casts and other materials into environments, and Segal interacting with acquaintances in his studio space.

Arrangement

This series is arranged into three divisions, each of which is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Segal's words and image were recorded very often over the span of his career, often voicing opinions on his own work or the work of others, his feelings about certain prominent figures or schools of thought, or offering commentary on the state of art, criticism, or his place in any one movement. An open and expressive storyteller, Segal granted a number of interviews, many of which are present in this series. A number of uncredited and unlabeled media are also present.

In addition to recordings made of Segal, Segal himself made recordings for his own purposes. Most notable among these is an audio recording of his friend Alice reading her own poetry, featured in the environment created in Alice Reading Her Poetry and Music (1970) and video from which a photographic still was used in the photomural Aerial View (1970).

Titles and notes are derived from all available information present on the item or the item's container.

Scope and Contents

This series contains material related to Segal's formative years as a student and an educator at a number of New York and New Jersey institutions. Materials include assignments, syllabi, projects, lesson plans, transcripts and ephemera accumulated over the course of Segal's primary, secondary, college-level and post-graduate studies as well as his experiences teaching from 1958 to 1964.

Segal's education as a fine artist was important not only for his training, but because he attended art school in New York City at a signifcant time in the Avant-Garde art world. In interviews Segal points to the time and place of his education as fundamental inspiration for the rest of his career. The history of Segal's education and how it later determined his early career as an art teacher is also integral to the development of his particular plaster-cast technique, since without those particular circumstances he would not have been exposed to the materials and thereafter establish his distinct style.

Researchers should note that some of the material located in this series relates directly to the artworks present in Series 1: Artwork. In many cases those artworks are the direct result of courses of study and assignments recorded in this series; the two series can be considered in tandem for the most comprehensive examination of Segal's early creative life.

Arrangement

This series is arranged chronologically into three subseries.

Physical Description

3.0 linear feet

Scope and Contents

This subseries contains notebooks, transcripts, syllabi, correspondence, a yearbook, papers and projects corresponding to Segal's education at P.S. 70 in the Bronx and at Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan from 1930 to 1941, Cooper Union School of Art from 1941 to 1942, Rutgers University (part-time) from 1942 to 1946, Pratt Institute of Design from 1947 to 1948, New York University from 1948 to 1949, and Rutgers University (Master of Fine Arts) from 1961 to 1963.

Scope and Contents

This series contains articles, reviews, photograph reproductions, interviews and casual mentions of George Segal's artwork, sculpture, participation, celebrity, awards or curiosities from newspapers, magazines, journals, pamphlets and other printed formats. The name of the series reflects its original title and not format; instead the series consists of clippings in folders. It is the result of Helen Segal's effort to keep a meticulous record of Segal's entire career, which was bolstered by friends, family members and business and art associates sending clippings from all over the world. The series is a record of George Segal's activities (both professional and casual), opinions, celebrity and notoriety, and the public and critical opinion of his oeuvre from the early 1950s until the year of his death in 2000.

The materials range from editorial cartoons to major articles in important or widely-circulated publications. In some cases, especially after international exhibitions, the museum staff responsible for the exhibit would gather clippings from news agencies. In other cases, long-time friends would send the Segals small bits of interest or curiosity, often with hand-written notations or underlining. Segal lent or referenced some of these files for the writing of several monographs about his life, whereupon they were arranged into bibliographies.

The range of material is broad and rich in content. Languages include German, Swedish, French, Dutch, Spanish, Japanese, and Korean; major English language publications include The New York Times, Time, LIFE, Vogue, Art International, Newsweek, Art Journal, Art in America, Studio International, The New Yorker, Harper's Bazaar, and Playboy.

Some correspondence accompanies materials including letters from William Benson, André Emmerich, Billy Klüver, Jan van der Marck, Germain Viatte, Gordon Hyatt, and Helmut von Effra. The series includes articles written by notable art historians and critics including John Canaday, Grace Glueck, Thomas B. Hess, Jill Johnston, Allan Kaprow, Hilton Kramer, Valdi S. Maris, John Perreault, Barbara Rose, David Shapiro, and Sidney Tillim.

It should be noted that clippings related to high-profile or controversial events, exhibitions or commissions appear elsewhere in the collection (3A: Sculptures and Commissions; 3D: Exhibitions). For clippings on specific sculptures or events, researchers are advised to also reference relevant subject files noted in the subseries above.

Arrangement notes: For those years divided by month, articles without dates are placed at the end of the last folder in that year. Those years without a Foreign Publications file may still have foreign publications but not so many as to be divided.

Scope and Contents

This series contains exhibition catalogs and posters related to over forty years of exhibitions in a number of countries and in a variety of languages, including Japanese and Korean. Despite a prolific history of exhibition – Segal and his work were featured in over one hundred one-man exhibitions and over three hundred group exhibitions in the course of his life and beyond – there are relatively few catalogs and posters present in the collection.

Researchers can reference the Exhibition Chronologies for a complete list of Segal's exhibitions.

Arrangement

This series is arranged into two subseries.

Physical Description

5.0 linear feet

Scope and Contents

This subseries contains over one hundred exhibition catalogs, including some in Korean and Japanese, dating from 1960s-2000s. These catalogs are often for Segal's annual shows at The Sidney Janis Gallery in New York City, but also from major shows across the United States and abroad (mainly Europe and Asia).

Arrangement

Arranged chronologically. Additional catalogs that were found after the initial arrangement of the collection in 2019 are listed at the end of the subseries, and represent materials from the same date ranges.

Scope and Contents

This series contains photographic prints by Donald Lokuta of George Segal, the Segal studio and galleries, casting sessions, and major installations of Segal's work.

Donald Lokuta was a professor of Photography at Kean University when he met George Segal through one of his students during a studio visit in 1984. Lokuta, so interested to meet the sculptor whose work he had admired during the pursuit of his Doctorate in Education at Ohio State University, would go on to spend the next sixteen years as a close family friend, fellow photographer, and studio assistant to the sculptor. This long and intimate friendship was owed in part, and most certainly at the beginning, to a mutual interest in photography. As a result, Lokuta was afforded the opportunity of photographing George Segal and his work from their meeting in 1984 until after the artist's death in 2000.

A majority of the prints in this series are the direct result of the fact that Lokuta, soon after meeting the artist, made a spontaneous offer during a photography session to assist Segal in the casting of one of his sculptures. Segal accepted his offer and Lokuta went on to assist him until he fell ill. Lokuta was present at dozens of casting sessions from 1984 to 1999. The prints in the Casting Sessions files document these fifteen years worth of sculpting and are the most complete and consistent record of Segal's hallmark method ever recorded. Photographs of sculptures being created include Street Crossing, Guinness Gold, Parking Garage, The Red Scaffold and Bus Passengers.

Lokuta was also keenly interested in the artist's installations. Segal considered the display of his artwork and sculpture in Rooms 2-9 of his ten room coop as gallery installations, carefully arranged by Segal himself and varying for whatever creative reasons Segal was inclined toward. These photographs document these installations over a span of eight years from 1992 to 2000. Additionally, Lokuta documented the studio (Room 1), the galleries (Rooms 2-9), and storage (Room 10) immediately preceding and following the artist's death on June 9, 2000. These photographs capture unfinished works in progress and the final installations by the artist in his lifetime.

Beyond the intimate, candid, and near constant access to Segal's studio and galleries, Lokuta was also present during important events. Documented in this series is a photographic record of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C, from plaster casting sessions (including his own), bronze casting at the foundry, and finally installation and dedication. Initially commissioned in 1977, the project was delayed until 1991, at which time Segal was called upon for the sculptures he had agreed to produce some thirteen years earlier. They were Depression Breadline, Fireside Chat, and Appalachian Farm Couple 1936, and Lokuta's photographs include the models (including Miles Forst, Martin Friedman, Donald Lokuta, Julie Martin, Billy Klüver, George Segal). Other models for the sculptures include Helen Segal, Leon Bibel and Daniel Burger.

Also present in the series is the last photography session that photographer Hans Namuth ever did with a professional artist, taken just four weeks before his death on October 13, 1990. Additionally there are prints of Segal installing "George Segal, a Retrospective: Sculptures, Paintings, Drawings" at the Hirshhorn Museum in 1998.

As the two friends photographed side-by-side for almost all the time they spent together, parts of this series coincide with Series 2: Fine Photography. Some of the prints located in the Life / Photography / Work files were taken on the same journeys throughout New York and New Jersey that produced most of the prints in Series 2. Lokuta would often photograph Segal making photographs, and these prints lend insight into the artist's method and approach. A guest of the family as often as a professional colleague, Lokuta's prints in these files capture a variety of other subjects, including family gatherings, dinner table scenes and ordinary moments in Segal's life.

The greater part of the photographs are annotated with remarks, dates, names and titles on the back of the prints detailing much information of interest. Additionally, Donald Lokuta agreed to further annotate certain photographs in the series, most notably by providing the names of models for as many of the installed sculptures as possible. These handwritten notes are present on envelopes and sheets of paper located with the prints themselves in certain files of the series and were recorded at the same time that the photographs were added to the collection in July 2009. Typed documentation provided by Lokuta is also present.

Physical notes: Photographs are contained within envelopes that have hand-written notes that pertain to those photographs or which have been paired with sheets of notations. Additionally, the prints are housed with sheets of paper interleaved between them. Researchers are asked to take care to preserve this arrangement while using the relevant files.

In some cases, photographs are bound between layers of archival board and preservation mylar. Researchers are asked to take care when returning materials to their folder that the mylar sheets are placed between the stack of photographs and the archival board, on top of the first print and beneath the last print. Secure the ribbon with a simple bow.
