Vito Schnabel is well known as an art dealer on the rise — and a nude artwork he recently posted on his Instagram feed by famed artist Richard Prince has further set tongues wagging.
We’re told the Prince painting is of Schnabel’s longtime girlfriend, supermodel Heidi Klum.
In response to the Instagram image, she posted: “I recognize those boobies.”
A source said Schnabel has the 2015 Prince artwork in his house. The art scion said in his post, “Love this painting.”
Meanwhile, we hear that the post is also a hint at more revealing work coming from the former Victoria’s Secret stunner and “Project Runway” star.
She has partnered with famed British fashion and portrait photographer Rankin on a nude photo book, “Heidi Klum by Rankin,” which exclusively features images of her in the buff and will be released this summer.
The Prince artwork is styled after one of the Rankin photos that will appear in the book.
A source said Klum and Rankin have been working on the book for five years, and, “She’s never released nude photos like this, ever.”
