Weekend Spill: An Addams Family Original Goes Sky-High At Auction

 

Sky-High Addams

Spill visitors might remember a post last week about the Addams Family original (shown here) up for auction. The hammer has now dropped: the lucky winner paid $87,500.00.

This is surely a record price for an Addams Family drawing, if not for any Addams drawing, and possibly for any single panel New Yorker-related drawing (I’m hoping that Attempted Bloggery, the site specializing in auctioned New Yorker cartoon work, weighs in to correct, or confirm my suspicion.

–My thanks to Stephen Nadler of AB for alerting me to the news of the sale.
