Linklaters, the global law firm, is partnering with the Réunion des musées nationaux – Grand Palais in France’s first retrospective of the works of Helmut Newton, one of the greatest masters of modern photography. The exhibition will be held from 24 March until 17 June 2012 at the Grand Palais – Galerie sud-est.
Linklaters supports great cultural projects
This first partnership with a French cultural institution forms part of an initiative established several years ago by Linklaters. The firm already sponsors renowned museums and cultural organisations in several countries. The London office has been involved with the Tate Britain and Tate Modern, whilst the New York office supported the MoMA.
According to Anne Wachsmann, the associate in charge of this project: “The law firm Linklaters bring together well-known talents. Our teams display, apart from technical excellence, imagination and creativity in order to find the best-adapted solutions to their clients’ problems. Through it support of a public institution, Linklaters in Paris wants to demonstrate its significant involvement in contemporary art and culture.”
The Partners at Linklaters in Paris are proud to be involved in this exceptional event within the cultural life of the capital.
Helmut Newton : one of the greatest masters of photography
Since the death of Helmut Newton in 2004, there has been no retrospective of the photographer held in France, despite being the country in which he created a major part of his works, most notably whilst working for French Vogue. Designed by June Newton, his wife for 60 years, the exhibition retraces the major themes dear to the artist concerning women, their role in society, and their representation.
The firm will support the exhibition which gathers together more than 200 images, composed almost exclusively of original prints created by Helmut Newton. The exhibition will further be enriched by an extract of a film created by June Newton: Helmut by June.
