'"TIED UP TORSO," RAMATUELLE'


large-format, signed, titled, dated, and editioned '6/10' in pencil on the reverse, framed, 1980 (Best of Helmut Newton, pl. 64)

18⅜ by 18⅜ in. (46.7 by 46.7 cm.)

This photograph is in generally excellent condition. When examined very closely in raking light, the following are visible: a soft crescent-shaped crease in the upper left quadrant; a hard crease in the upper left quadrant that may break the emulsion; and a few isolated deposits of original retouching. The left and right margin edges are gently rippled. None of the aforementioned detract in any way from the overall appearance of this print.


'+' is in red crayon in an unidentified hand on the reverse.
