Donald Kaufman, known as a master architectural colorist, and his wife Taffy are listing their Chelsea triplex for $1.97 million.
Kaufman’s paintings can also be found in the Whitney Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Hirshhorn Museum.
He also worked with famed architectural legends like the late Philip Johnson, who described him as “the rare painter who understands architecture.”
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op is at 333 W. 22nd St., an elevator townhouse on a tree-lined block.
The home, which begins on the fourth floor, is filled with light and features a planted terrace with an irrigation system. A second bedroom doubles as an art studio. Kaufman first moved to New York in the 1950s, following a teaching stint in California.
He met Taffy in New York and they settled in Chelsea. He’s now semi-retired and living in a home outside the city.
The listing brokers are Marcy Grau and Ellen Cohen of Compass.
