Tracing Maus


Tracing Maus was an interesting project in that a page of the comic by Art Spiegelman was broken down into its most simplest form. By not only taking an image and showing only the most important elements that still told the story, but also analyze the purpose of each element, Spiegelman’s mastery of the art form becomes evident.

The two pages I analyzed showed the discussion of the most important theme in Maus, a progression in tone, and the importance of feelings.

I selected “Parshas Trauma“, Page 57 of Book 1 of Maus and “The Psychotherapist Scene” on Page 44 of Book 2.
