Lisa de Kooning, daughter of Abstract Expressionist painter Willem de Kooning, has just sold her Upper East Side condo for $1.45 million, according to deed transfer records.

Back in November, Ms. de Kooning dropped close to $3 million on a Jane Street condo, nearby the old AbEx stomping grounds, as reported in The Observer.

Also, Sopranos star James Gandolfini once lived in the Greenwich Village building; that is, before he got divorced and sold the multi-unit pad to his ex-wife.

Certainly the de Kooning estate is doing alright these days, with sales of the master’s works thriving. Last night, Christie’s postwar and contemporary sale brought in over $143 million–with several de Kooning works in the mix. An untitled painting (1961) sold for $10 million, and Two Women (Study for Clamdigger) fetched $5.7 million.
