  • Catalogue Essay

    Part Norman Rockwell, part Andy Warhol, Segal's work has been tossed into every category from American realism and pop art to social expressionism and figurative sculpture. Despite the critics' categorical wavering, their approval has remained steadfast and their reviews continue to say one thing: Segal's sculptures resound with subtle genius.
