Not Just Good Art, But Neat Web Presentation

An Addams Family Holiday excerpt

The New Yorker has an online article about a little-known painting by Charles Addams featuring his famous Addams Family characters at the beach. It’s a nifty little discovery, and I always enjoy seeing more of his work.

(The Addams characters first appeared in The New Yorker, by the way, in 1938.)

What’s neat, beyond seeing a cartoon-ish seasonal piece of art, is how the site presents the painting. The second half of the article analyzes the layout and some of the art choices, and it does so by highlighting the different elements under discussion as the reader scrolls through the piece. It’s a neat way to add something beyond the printed page and the piece of discovered art.
