Sie Kommen, Paris, 1981 (Nude) silver gelatin vintage photograph is a rare opportunity for the serious collector. Global Images USA is delighted to offer this 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.
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 performed producing the "Private Property" collection and promoting a series of exhibitions in London, Paris, New York, and Los Angeles in 1985. The collection was legally transferred to Solomon in 1986 via written agreement and further ratified in legal settlement in 2012 with the Helmut Newton Estate and Foundation in the Superior Court of Los Angeles, California, and recorded in the United States Copyright Office. This vintage print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Norman Solomon that details his ownership rights and authenticity supported by legal agreement.
