Signed "Helmut" this silver gelatin vintage photograph is a rare opportunity for the serious collector. Global Images USA is delighted to offer this very rare signed example of one of Newton’s most famous works titled “Sie Kommen” meaning “She Comes”.  "Sie Kommen" is one of the most iconic Newton images. It adorned his exhibitions in near life-size, providing a sculptural statement of Newton's fascination for strong yet beautiful woman. Life-sized versions of this photograph featured in Newton's "Private Property" Exhibitions in London and Paris and both of the pair, naked and dressed, photographs appear in Newton's famous book, Sumo, as well as several others.

The one we have available is the larger 20x24 size. Image is signed by Newton with his elongated signature, which he reserved for special items, and copyright stamped on the verso.  Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

Printed in or around 1984, this vintage photograph was one of several that Newton gave or sold to friends and acquaintances. Most were discarded or destroyed over time. This particular picture was given to an acquaintance in France around the time of Newton’s Private Property Exhibitions. It has been acquired for Global Images USA from its original owner by Norman Solomon, who knew Helmut very well and who, with John Dunnicliff, produced the “Private Property” exhibitions.

Models (L to R): Henriette (cover of Sumo), Lisa Thorensen, Alexandra Pin and Sylvia Gobbel.

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 fine art print 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 print has been stored in conservation condition.
