The exhibition presents an overview of Helmut Newton’s photographs in the context of interwar photography and it is divided into four sections, presenting step-by-step Newton’s sources of inspiration (Erwin Blumenfeld, František Drtikol, Horst P. Horst, George Hoyningen-Huene, etc.) and his most prolific creative period from 1950 to 2000. The exhibition also includes works by Newton’s contemporaries (for example, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, etc.). The “Czech Traces” section is supposed to be the highlight of the exhibition, presenting works by Tono Stano and Gabina Fárová from the late 1980s and early 1990s (they worked with Newton during his Prague’s stay in 1988).
