Lot Details

The late Helmut Newton was perhaps the twentieth century's most influential, intriguing and controversial photographer. German born Newton moved from Berlin to Paris before relocating to Monte Carlo and enjoyed international success with work featuring in magazines including French Vogue, Elle, Paris Match, Playboy and Marie Claire.
Newton’s work carries a heavy erotic charge and combines humour with decadence, voyeurism and hints of sado-masochism, elements evident in his Cyberwomen series, nude portraits shot in famous Los Angeles hotel, Chateau Mermont.

In 1990 Newton was awarded the Grand Prix National de la Photographie in Paris, and Officier des Arts, Lettres et Sciences in Monaco in 1992. Newton has had major retrospectives in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, Turin and Moscow. He died in 2004 California, aged 83.
