About

Vintage 1982 Gelatin Silver Print. 16 x 20 in. sheet Printed later by Helmut Newton. Signed on front, date inscription and estate stamp on verso. Artists copyright stamp on back, hand written “Monte Carlo 1984”. Condition: Excellent Helmut Newton (1920-2004) was one of the world’s most celebrated photographers, whose uniquely edgy imagery is coveted worldwide by collectors and aficionados of photographic art, with auction values increasing steadily. Newton created a working space for his celebrity shoots and models that was part decadent and part unorthodox — a safe microcosm in which fantasies became reality. Perhaps most famously of all, Newton engendered an environment in which his female models claimed the space around them with unapologetic poise and commanding sensuality. His almost cinematic compositions provided a hyper-real backdrop for the provocative images of sculptural, larger-than-life women, and enhanced the themes of voyeurism and fetishism that run throughout his work. Amazingly, despite the fact that Newton was known for his erotically charged photography, shot in a grainy, filmic style. It was not until he was 59 years old that he shot his first nudes. “It was not until 1980 that I photographed what I consider to be my first nude. In quick succession I executed the Big Nudes, the Naked and Dressed, and, in Los Angeles, the Domestic Nudes series. The fact that the models in these photographs were the same girls I used in my fashion work gave them a certain elegance and coolness that I was looking for in my work.” - Helmut Newton - on models. "American Photo", January/February 2000. This print is in excellent condition, having been stored in a controlled environment. It is excellent example of vintage Helmut Newton photography.
