The Sie Kommen Pair(Naked and Dressed as Pair)Signed "Helmut Newton"


These are one of Newton’s most famous works. Both are signed by Helmut Newton. These exceptionally rare photographs are real collectors’ or investors’ pieces.

Description


"Sie Kommen" is one of the most iconic Newton images. Shown here are both the "dressed" and "undressed versions" of Newton's humorous play on mannequin display fashion.

The naked version 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 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.
