Lot description
This black-and-white nude study from Deruytter's early career renders the female body purely as an object of visual interest. In its neoclassical sensibility and extreme objectification of the nude form, "Saskia I" marks the artist as a contemporary of Robert Mapplethorpe and Helmut Newton.

Wouter Deruytter (b. 1967) is a contemporary Belgian photographer who brings dramatic flair and an outsider’s eye to his images of cowboys, sheiks, circus performers, drag queens, and Crow warriors, among many others.
