"Elsa Peretti 2" 16x20 Vintage Silver Gelatin by Helmut Newton Photography


16x20 Vintage Silver Gelatin

POA (photos of actual artwork)

‘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.

Elsa Peretti is one of Helmut Newton’s most iconic photographs. This variation of the better known version we have has rarely come to market. We have only two of these original vintage sIlver gelatin photographs available.


Ask a Question
  • Are these Limited editions and if so how many

    Hi there and good morning. Thanks for the inquiry regarding the Elsa Peretti silver gelatin print by Helmut Newton. The structure when they produced these in the mid 1980's was 75 sets of unnumbered box sets in 16x20 and 20x24 sizes. They produced 10-12 of the images in 20x24 signed editions of 10 and a handful of 40x40 large ones in editions of 3. I do gave a signed 20x24 Elsa Peretti available of you are interested and have both versions available in the 16x20 and 20x24 sizes. I will be in the gallery tidying some things up most of the afternoon if you have any questions or want to chat.
