In honor of Tu B’av (which was yesterday), the first edition of “Jewish Artwork of the Week” is from Art Spiegelman. This cover was from the February 15, 1993 issue of the New Yorker.
Known primarily for his Pulitzer Prize wining graphic novel, Maus, Spiegelman has become a recognized figure in both the art and comic book world. In addition to drawing comics, Spiegelman worked for over ten years as an artist for the New Yorker. He created some of the magazines most-loved covers, including the one for the September 24, 2001 issue.
