Helmut Newton’s iconic photograph, Self Portrait with Wife and Models, is due to be auctioned off at Christie’s on May 16th. Taken in 1980, the portrait has become incredibly famous, and one of Newton’s most recognised photographs. It’s estimated that the portrait will reach a whopping £90,000 at auction.
The photograph is part of a series of other images up for sale in the auction, which includes more of Newton’s work such as his 10th Floor Hilton, Paris, 1976, plus other iconic images such as Irving Penn’s Kerchief, Glove (Dior), Paris 1950; Irving Penn’s Harlequin Dress (Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn), New York, 1950; and Burt Glinn’s portrait of Andy Warhol, Edie Sedgwick and Chuck Wein, 1965.
An amazing collection, I’d love to see in the flesh.
