POA (photos of actual artwork). Elsa Peretti in Bunny Costume is a lasting image of the 1970s. Newton shot this work in New York amongst the towering skyscrapers that characterize the American Dream, equally epitomized by the Playboy lifestyle in the 70s. In it, Newton features the iconic motifs of his work- casting the intimacy of the night into the reality of the day, the clothing of the private into the sphere of the public and perhaps most masterfully, the voyeuristic gaze. From every window within the skyscrapers, we sense powerful gazes looking down on Peretti. Elsa Peretti is one of Helmut Newtons most iconic photographs. This variation of the better known version we have has rarely come to market. We have only two of these original vintage sIlver gelatin photographs available. This is a rare pre-1985 original vintage print produced in small numbers from a series of transparencies that Newton considered his most provocative and important work through 1985. Always unsigned, they were sent out to major publications to stimulate interest in a photographers work. Most were destroyed or written over, it is very rare to find them in immaculate condition. This collection of vintage prints were gifted to Newtons agent Norman Solomon, in recognition of the work he had carried out in promoting Newtons Private Property series of exhibitions in 1985. This fine art print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Norman Solomon. The ownership rights of this vintage print are supported by an original agreement with Newton in 1984, and supplemented by a further agreement with The Helmut Newton Estate in 2012. This print has been stored in conservation condition. The item “Elsa Peretti 2 Vintage Silver Gelatin Print by Helmut Newton Photography” is in sale since Monday, December 16, 2019.
