Ernie Barnes’s most famous painting, “Sugar Shack,” an exultant dancing scene featured on the cover of Marvin Gaye’s album “I Want You” and during the closing credits of TV’s “Good Times,” sold for $15.3 million at Christie’s.

@nytimes I love this painting. As a kid my brother had a print of some of his artwork and I used to stare at it often.

@nytimes Just lookin' out of the window Watching the asphalt grow Thinking how it all looks hand-me-down Keeping your head above water Making a wave when you can Temporary lay offs Easy credit rip offs. Scratchin' and survivin' Hangin' in and jivin' Ain't we lucky we got 'em Good Times.

@nytimes I saw Barnes exhibit in Raleigh in the nineties. He was remarkable.
