Images of George Segal, Box: Man in Bar

In a long, vertical frame, a white figure's bust appears to be sitting in a bar window. He rests hi head in his hand, and his elbow on a curtain rod. There is a bright capital letter "R" above him.
  1. Long This sculpture is framed in a vertical rectangular box like a scene in a window. A solitary figure made of white paper mache looks down and leans sadly on his hand. His elbow rests on a curtain rod, as if he is in a bar or restaurant. Above him is a bright blue capital letter "R."
