Helmut Newton (German/Australian, 1920-2004), "Gayle Olinekova, Marathon Champion", 1981, 3 silver gelatin prints, smallest image pencil-signed en verso and inscribed on image at right; each stamped with artist's copyright, numbered and inscribed en verso; images 7 in. x. 9 1/4 in., 8 5/8 in. x 11 3/8 in. and 10 3/8 in. x 14 7/8 in., unframed. (3 pcs.) Note: Gayle Olinekova (1953-2003) was a Canadian marathon runner and bodybuilder. In the 1979 New Orleans Marathon, she became the third fastest female marathon runner with a record time of 2:35:12. The triptych presented here was part of a 1981 series of photographs produced by Helmut Newton entitled Strong Women: A Portfolio of California's Super Athletes. Olinekova, who Sports Illustrated nicknamed the "Greatest Legs To Ever Stride The Earth, challenged the perception of femininity and athleticism during a time period when Title IX, which prohibits discrimination based on gender in school athletics, was first going into effect. Olinekova encouraged fellow female athletes to embrace a muscular physique by publicly declaring that strength is beauty. In the photographs of Gayle Olinekova in their various sizes and annotated formats, Newton presents myriad views of a strong female athlete. Ref.: Thurber, John.
