He’s still the picture of excess.
A photograph of Jordan Belfort — the party-loving finance crook whose high-flying life and epic downfall inspired Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” — sold for $200,000 at a Miami art fair this week.
Titled “The Wolves of Wall Street I,” the black-and-white image by British-fine art photographer David Yarrow shows Belfort in a glitter- and dollar-bill-strewn office posing with a real wolf and two models.
It was signed by Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, who portrayed the drug-dabbling stock scammer in the 2013 blockbuster film, based on Belfort’s 2007 memoir by the same name.
The wild photo was on display during a VIP preview of the Art Miami fair at the Maddox Gallery booth for only about 10 minutes before someone snatched it up.
“There was an awful lot of attention to detail that went into the photo,” Yarrow told The Post.
An homage to the film, it includes a slew of references such as: a marching band, ’80s computers, ticker tape and Belfort holding a pen, the prop his character in the movie uses to distinguish real from amateur sales talent.
There’s also a nod to Jonah Hill eating a live goldfish as Belfort lieutenant Donnie Azoff, with YouTube star Cameron Dallas holding up a fish in the photo’s background.
The day-long shoot at an abandoned office in Simi Valley cost $150,000, “which is a lot for a photographer,” Yarrow said.
The cost included extra AC to keep the wolf cool.
“It’s tricky,” Yarrow said. “Sometimes the wolf, when it gets hot, it’ll have its tongue out. You want the mouth closed,” so it took time to cool off the beast.
Belfort, 57, said of working with the animal: “It was fun, but it was wild.”
“The wolf is a lot bigger than you think. It’s not like a dog. It has different mannerisms, the coat is so thick,” he said. “It doesn’t listen like a dog. It’s not like you tell a wolf to sit. It took about three hours to get the shot.”
The failed financier served a four-year prison term for stealing more than $200 million from investors while running his Stratton Oakmont brokerage as a penny-stock “boiler room.”
Before he was busted, the dental school dropout lived a life of excess that included mega-mansions, luxury sports cars — along with hookers and practically very drug imaginable.
Belfort, who is now a motivational speaker living in California, said he’s been recognized at the art fair and is working on a new book on “the mindset of coming back from financial failure and setbacks.”
Yarrow is donating 80% of the sale of the photograph to a conservation charity. Another, similar, photo, “The Wolves of Wall Street II” also debuted for the first time at the art fair. There are only 12 of each.
