Sie Kommen (Signed "Helmut Newton")


This is one of Newton’s most famous works. It is signed by Helmut Newton, exceptionally rare and a real collectors’ or investors’ piece.

Description


"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 Popery Exhibitions in London and Paris and it is one of the photographs Newton included in his iconic book, Sumo.

The point of my photography has always been to challenge myself, to go a little further than my Germanic discipline and Teutonic nature would traditionally permit me to.
