POA (photos of actual artwork)

Shot for French Vogue in 1977, "Lanvin Fitting Chez Patou" is a dramatic take on the atelier model. Laced with attitude and independence, Newton reveals the inner character of the models otherwise suppressed by the function of their task. Here, the model not the clothing becomes the focus of the photograph. When Newton did shoot indoors, he preferred to use the ateliers of his artist and designer friends in Paris. 

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. The print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Norman Solomon. The ownership rights of this print are supported by an original agreement with Newton in 1984, and supplemented by a further agreement with The Helmut Newton Estate in 2012. They have been stored in conservation condition.
