16x20 Vintage Silver Gelatin Print Hand Signed on Front by Helmut Newton with Estate Copyright Stamp and Hand Date On Verso
"Natassja Kinski, Los Angeles 1983" is a 16x20 vintage silver gelatin print from photo shoots captured during a Playboy Magazine photo shoot in Los Angeles and has become one of Newton's most sought after prints. Beautiful as new example is hand signed on front with the Helmut Newton Estate Copyright stamp on verso.
This is a rare pre-1985 original vintage print produced in small numbers from a series of transparencies that Newton considered his most provocative and important work through 1985. Always unsigned, they were sent out to major publications to stimulate interest in a photographer’s work. Most were destroyed or written over, it is very rare to find them in immaculate condition.
This collection of vintage prints were gifted to Newton’s agent Norman Solomon, in recognition of the work he had carried out in promoting Newton’s “Private Property” series of exhibitions in 1985. This vintage fine art photograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Norman Solomon. The ownership rights of this vintage print are supported by an original agreement with Newton in 1984, and supplemented by a further agreement with The Helmut Newton Estate in 2012. This photograph has been stored in conservation condition.
