Louis Meisel, the longtime the owner of the eponymous Soho art gallery, just added a very sizable new work of art to his collection. The art dealer bought a three-bedroom apartment at the ODA-designed condo building at 51 Jay Street for $3.6 million, according to public records.

Meisel’s art gallery in Soho at 141 Prince Street was one of the first in Soho. He is known for having having coined the term photorealism in 1969. He is also credited with promoting the genre of American “Pin-up” illustrations. He owns one of world’s most important collections of both photorealist art and pin up illustrations.

His new digs boast three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and 2,479 square feet.

“Unwind in an open, airy duplex loft with a private, outdoor terrace overlooking a magnificent courtyard designed by Steven Yavanian Landscape Architecture,” the listing’s slightly redundant description reads. “This duplex residence is spread over two spacious levels and is loft living at its finest.”

It features casement windows, oak herringbone floors, an oversized kitchen, “dramatic” cabinetry by Aster Cucine, “La Rochelle Gris” marble countertops, a suite of Gaggenau appliances, and a soaking tub.
