Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs Buys Chicago Artist’s Painting For $21 Million

(New York, NY) – Kerry James Marshall’s artwork is worth a lot of money. A painting by the black Chicago artist titled “Past Times” was sold by the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority for just over 21-million-dollars in an auction Wednesday night at Sotheby’s New York.

The sale price was the most ever paid for the work of a living African-American artist. “Past Times” had been on display at McCormick Place for years.

Marshall’s New York dealer, Jack Shainman, told the New York Times that P. Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs, is the work’s buyer.
