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.
Arranged alphabetically by medium.
