Description

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.
