CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A painting made famous for gracing a Marvin Gaye album cover sold for more than $15M. The work is by artist Ernie Barnes. It’s called The Sugar Shack and displays an energetic scene inside a dance hall. In addition to being the cover art for Gaye’s I Want You record, it was part of the set for the sitcom Good Times for four seasons. Hedge fund manager Bill Perkins purchased The Sugar Shack painting after 10 minutes of bidding, according to Christie’s Auction House.
