LONDON, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- London auction house Christie's is selling a portrait of a naked and pregnant Kate Moss, the Sun reported Friday.

The almost life-size painting of the supermodel reclining on a bed was done by Lucian Freud, grandson of the famed psychoanalyst and one of Britain's most respected artists. It expected to bring close to $6 million.

Freud began work on the painting in 2001 when he started sketching Moss early in her pregnancy.

The painting is scheduled for auction Wednesday.
