• A painting/drawing is graphically or physically separated into multiple panels, as in comic books, with each panel meant to attract fairly equal attention

Such an approach is particularly suited to narrative works, telling a story that unfolds as the viewer looks from panel to panel. Non-narrative multi-panel works can communicate a sense of equality amongst many different subjects depicted on the panels.
