Helmut Newton

Celebration of the Body Beautiful

From Michelangelo’s David to Helmut Newton’s erotic nudes, artists have always been obsessed with capturing the human body at its peak.

Olympic athletes at the height of their physical powers are one notion of the body beautiful (which has been portrayed, fetishised, manipulated or represented by artists across the centuries) brought to life.


The Most Expensive Book of the Twentieth Century

Christie’s Photographs sale in London on 16 May featured over 100 works from the nineteenth century through to the twenty-first.

Helmut Newton is an acknowledged master of the recent past and his work was, as ever, in great demand. A self-portrait with his wife and a model from 1980 exceeded its estimate of £70,000 to £90,000 and eventually sold for over £200,000.
