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
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.
Arranged alphabetically by medium.
