Story / Additional Info : This is a rare 1980's vintage silver gelatin print from Newton's "Private Property" Collection. The collection featured 45 images Newton selected as ones he thought his most impactful and provocative to date. The 45 image collection was produced in two box size sets with limited quantities. Newton hired American producer Norman Solomon to produce and distribute the collection which subsequently opened in Paris, London, New York, and Los Angeles. Following several years of uninspiring sales, the pair parted ways with Solomon receiving the remainder of inventory from Newton as consideration his services. This agreement between Newton and Solomon was executed in Los Angeles, California at the Chateau Marmont Hotel where Newton resided until his death, and has since been supplemented by further legal agreement in 2012 with the Helmut Newton Estate. Perhaps Newton’s most iconic work that followed on from the work he did for Playboy, ‘Elsa Peretti in Bunny Costume’ is a lasting image of the 1970’s. Newton shot this work in New York amongst the towering skyscrapers that characterize the American Dream, equally epitomized by the Playboy lifestyle in the 70’s. In it, Newton features the iconic motifs of his work- casting the intimacy of the night into the reality of the day, the clothing of the private into the sphere of the public and perhaps most masterfully, the voyeuristic gaze. From every window within the skyscrapers, we sense powerful gazes looking down on Peretti.

Helmut Newton - Germany

Art Brokerage: Helmut Newton German-Australian Artist: b. 1920-2004. Helmut Newton (born Helmut Neustädter; 31 October 1920 – 23 January 2004) was a German-Australian photographer. He was a "prolific, widely imitated fashion photographer whose provocative, erotically charged black-and-white photos were a mainstay of Vogue and other publications." Newton was born in Berlin, the son of Klara "Claire" (née Marquis) and Max Neustädter, a button factory owner. His family was Jewish. Newton attended the Heinrich-von-Treitschke-Realgymnasium and the American School in Berlin. Interested in photography from the age of 12 when he purchased his first camera, he worked for the German photographer Yva (de) (Elsie Neulander Simon) from 1936. The increasingly oppressive restrictions placed on Jews by the Nuremberg laws meant that his father lost control of the factory in which he manufactured buttons and buckles; he was briefly interned in a concentration camp on Kristallnacht, 9 November 1938, which finally compelled the family to leave Germany. Newton's parents fled to South America. He was issued with a passport just after turning 18 and left Germany on 5 December 1938. At Trieste he boarded the Conte Rosso (along with about 200 others escaping the Nazis), intending to journey to China. After arriving in Singapore he found he was able to remain there, first briefly as a photographer for the Straits Times and then as a portrait photographer. Helmut Newton's studies of nude women became his signature and the self-obsessed and often distant poses of the models frequent caused polemic in the art-world. He won the sobriquets "King of Kink" and Prince of Porn" in the 1970s after the publication of his erotic photo book "White Women." Listings wanted.
