POA (photos of actual artwork)

Helmut Newton's Private Property Collection "Gia By Cadillac Hollywood" original fine art shot in 1976 featuring Gia Carangi. In ‘Hollywood 1976 Cadillac in Garage’, Newton plays on the idea of parking multiple cars in your garage. Channelling the twin boyhood desires of girls and cars, there is a sense of seduction and danger to both as they come towards you. Newton was to use cars as a prop for his work throughout his career, collecting them himself. Having driven as a truck driver and mechanic for the Australian Army during the war, they were large part of his life. The Cadillac featured in this image was Newton’s own.

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.
