Two vintage silver prints. One signed, titled, dated and annotated 'In appreciation & admiration of a perfect body' in black ink recto. Each annotated in pencil with the photographer's 'COPYRIGHT HELMUT NEWTON PARIS, FRANCE' and limitation stamps verso.

29.5 x 20 cm (11½x 7⅞in); 29 x 19.8 cm (11⅜x 7¾in.)

Front: This early print is in overall good to very good condition. Corners slightly bumped and edges a little worn, mark of drying clip along lower left corner. Very faint silverization along edges, only visible in raking light. Some extremely small foxing, hardly noticeable and only in raking light, and a few faint brown foxing in the 'window' area, only visible in very close inspection. Some faint scuffing and pressure points across prints, hardly noticeable and only in raking light. Some light brown foxing verso.


Verso: This early print is in overall good to very good condition. Corners slightly bumped, with faint creases and edges a little worn. A linear crease along lower left edge, visible in close inspection. Four soft handling creases across print, and some very fine cracklings near lower right corner, only visible in raking light. Very faint silvering and very light foxing in some area, all of which only visible in raking light. Two tiny brown foxing visible in very close inspection next to Eiffel Tower. General faint scuffing and pressure points visible in raking light only. A light brown stain verso.


Despite those tiny imperfections, a beautiful pair of early Newton photographs with strong tones and contrasts and with an amazing provenance.
