About this deal

Model Henriette Allais assumes the role of 'Big Nude III' in this image by Helmut Newton that has become one of the most widely-published, recognisable and emblematic of his photographs. In 1990 he was awarded the Grand Prix National for photography; in 1992 the German government awarded him Das Grosse Verdienstkreuz for services to German culture, and he was appointed Officer des Arts, Lettres et Sciences by S. He reserves his strangest emotions for unpeopled landscapes, pausing for minutes before a darkened lake with rippled lines of wrinkled water lapping towards the camera, and the distant shore a dark and threatening frontier, like Hades. Artistes: Revue Bimestrielle d'Art Contemporain, Paris, January - February 1981, front cover; Newton, Big Nudes, Schirmer/Mosel, 1990, n. Furthermore, Newton’s photographs both reflect and comment on the transformation of the role of women in western society at the time.

These women look less frozen than their earlier, hotel-room sisters; their faces suggest annoyance at being under a tree without their knickers, for Mr Newton's whimsical interest.Sex and landscape, he says, represent two aspects of his personality, broadly speaking, raunch and romanticism. Big Nude III was first exhibited, with others from the series, in the Galerie Daniel Templon, Paris, in the show 'Helmut Newton Photographies, 1980-81', October 29 - November 26, 1981. Newton deepened our understanding of changing gender roles, of the ways in which beauty creates its own kind of power and corruption. While this remained his primary means of connecting with his audience, from around 1980 demand from collectors for his work increased and Newton started to number his prints in editions.

the print is precisely cut from top to bottom in a curvilinear form, with an acetate overlay containing artful retouching and highlighting; with Newton's credit and notations including "Oct 83 Vogue," in ink, on overlay recto. For Helmut Newton, fashion often seems to be an excuse to realize something different and very individual.
