George Segal
Girl on Red Chair

1974

About the Item

"Girl on Red Chair" is a plaster, wood and acrylic sculpture by George Segal, made in 1974. The work is 43 1/4 x 38 x 31 inches. George Segal was an American Pop artist. Though he began his career as a painter, he is best known for his iconic figurative sculptures. He made white plaster casts of people in poses and settings that mimic daily life, cinematic scenes, and historical events. His sculpture offers a haunting portrait of American life in the 20th century. The use of plaster and the life-sized scale of Segal’s figures produce an intense, realistic effect—while, at the same time, the all-white color of the plaster neutralizes and alienates his human subjects from their everyday motifs. Segal attended the academic art programs of New York University, the Pratt Institute, and Cooper Union. He received numerous accolades for his work, including a 1992 Lifetime Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award from the International Sculpture Center. He died June 9, 2000. Provenance: Direct from the artist to the Gloria Luria Collection in Miami, Florida
