Sie kommen is a diptych which provides a key for reading the series. In the left element, four women are elegantly dressed as for a fashion show. They walk towards the operator. On the right picture, they are in the same position but they stripped everything excepted their high heeled shoes that increase their sculptural attitude.
A print of this diptych in four panels 193 x 98 cm very close to life size was sold for $ 660K including premium by Christie's on December 16, 2008.
The same group is shown on a triptych entitled Walking Women, Paris. They are standing in slightly varying positions and once again completely naked over their shoes. Newton had left them a freedom of movement and probably chose among many negatives three images that best expressed the charm and the strangeness of the scene.
This triptych in an image format 135 x 113 cm each in three separate mounts 172 x 150 cm is estimated $ 700K, lot 8 for sale by Phillips in New York on April 1.
