Segal, George

(b. 1924)
   American sculptor. He was born in New York. He began as a painter, then integrated freestanding plaster sculptures with his paintings, and eventually worked in sculptural forms alone. Some of his works refer to his Jewish background, and others to biblical subjects. He has also produced sculpture based on the Holocaust.
