Subject matter
A photograph from a portfolio of images in which Helmut Newton depicts celebrities, designers and models in highly contrived poses and often placed in decadent scenes. In this photograph, the actress Charlotte Rampling is seated nude on a table at the legendary Hotel Nord Pinus in Arles, France. Centered in the frame, she leans back on her arm and looks over her shoulder at the viewer with a sultry gaze. Her right hand grips the top of a wine glass on the edge of the table near a pack of cigarettes. Her pose is provacative as she sits nude in this ornate and plushly decorated room.

Physical Description
A photograph of a woman seated on a large wood table. Nude aside from a pair of heels, she turns to look at the viewer while resting on arm on the table and the other on a wine glass.
