The world’s most powerful art dealer is checking out of his longtime Upper East Side digs.

Larry Gagosian, the silver-haired art mogul famed for working with artists such as Cy Twombly and Richard Serra, has sold his stunning carriage house on E. 69th St. for $ 18 million, according to public records filed with the city Wednesday.

The buyer of the property, at 147 E. 69th St., is Sascha Bauer, chairman of Long Island City’s beloved SculptureCenter.

Gagosian had owned the former stable turned luxe private home since 1988, when he bought it from Schlumberger heiress Christophe de Menil. He reportedly filled it with multi-million dollar pieces of art, including an original Picasso, which hung over his bed.

A spokesperson for Gagosian was not immediately available for comment on why the art titan had decided to sell.

But the mogul sure won’t be short of a place to lay his head.

He still owns the famous former Harkness Mansion, at 4 E. 75th St., which he bought for $ 36.5 million in 2011.
