The Upper East Side home of murdered philanthropist Barbara Weiden Schwartz Fischler sold for $3.4 million, according to property records filed with the city Monday.

Andrei and Arielle Mark are the buyers of the three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom co-op, at 45 East 85th Street between Madison and Park avenues. The couple are known art collectors who run the Englewood, New Jersey-based Mark Gallery. The deal closed earlier this month, property records show.

Fischler, who headed the Weiden Schwartz Fischler Family Foundation, was stabbed to death in the seventh-floor apartment by her son, Jonathan Schwartz, in 2011. Schwartz, a diagnosed schizophrenic, was found not guilty in the murder last year by reason of insanity.

Arielle Mark confirmed the transaction, telling The Real Deal that she and her husband are aware of the apartment’s history. Legal representatives for Fischler’s estate also confirmed the deal.
