David Bowie


A rare pre-1985 original vintage print produced in limited numbers from a series of transparencies that Newton considered his most provocative and important work through 1985.

Description


Bowie and Newton shared a mutual respect for each other’s creative genius, and became great personal friends, as well as Bowie becoming an avid collector of Newton’s work.

It began when I was so ill that there was a good chance of dying. I promised myself that if I survived I would never again pander to a magazine's requests or follow the ideas of art directors. I would only make images which were personal, which arose out of my own life.
