Helmut Newton
Helmut Newton is one of the most influential fashion photographers of the 20th century

Newton (1920-2004) worked in an erotically charged and provocative style, making use of tropes from the world of fetish and BDSM.

He once stated, "I hate good taste. It's the worst thing that can happen to a creative person"

The collection includes some of his most famous images - including the fierce projections of female sexuality Sie Kommen (1981) and Woman Examining Man (1975).

A print of Sie Kommen made $46,875 at Julien's Auctions earlier this year.

A print of Richard Avedon's iconic portrait of Francis Bacon is offered with a $120,000-180,000 estimate.

The work, signed by Avedon (1923-2004) and numbered nine of 10, echoes Bacon's method of showing his subject from a range of different viewpoints.

Last year Bacon's Three Studies of Lucian Freud became the most valuable piece of art ever sold at auction, achieving $142.4m at Christie's New York.
