"Gemelas" Vintage Silver Gelatin Print by Helmut Newton Photography

POA (photos of actual artwork)

Shot for Vogue, ‘Blonde on Blonde’ features clothing by Yves Saint Laurent, whose career Helmut Newton is largely credited for helping to launch with avant-garde images such as this one. In this print, two identical women (one is a mannequin) stand in tantalizingly close proximity to each other, creating an imperfect but surreal mirror image. Often Newton worked in pairs, creating compositional dialogues that lent a sense of mystery and subversive tension to the work- creating untold, imaginary narratives. 

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 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.
