Catalogue Note

Newton's iconic works from series such as Big Nudes or Naked and Dressed marked the pinnacle of his erotic-urban style, all underpinned with his heavily voyeuristic nature and technical prowess. This variant of the well-known 'Veruschka on the Terrace' is the image Newton chose to include in SUMO. There are very few prints of this image known.
