Description

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.
