Six years after it sold for $2.5 million, a duplex in Central Park South's famed Gainsborough Studios is back on the market. This time around, the two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom apartment is seeking $4.195 million. Gainsborough Studios was built in 1908 by Thomas Buckham as housing for artists in a boom-time for such developments throughout New York City. Traces of the building's history can be seen throughout the apartment, especially in its light-filled dual-height open area. The seller is Amy Baker Sandback, whose late husband, Fred Sandback, is an acclaimed minimalist artist.
