Happy Birthday George Segal!! American born in 1924, not to be confused with the actor, was a painter and sculptor associated with the Pop movement. He is best known for his life-sized figures created from plaster gauze bandages. Segal used human models, wrapping them in sections with plaster bandages, allowing the gauze to harden and removed them, putting the forms back together. He then created scenes with the ghostly figures, at first leaving them white and later began painting them with bright colors. Segal eventually began casting the figures in bronze. I am including a plaster tableau here, Street Crossing, Montclair State University.
