Lot description
This rare version of Warhol's portrait of Jane Fonda is signed by Fonda herself. The deep royal blue background frames Fonda's face and voluminous hair, and emphasizes her vibrant red lips. Fonda, who is well-known for her political activism and protest of war and violence against women, wrote "Peace, Jane Fonda" along the bottom of the image.

This print was published to raise funds for the Tom Hayden campaign for California state assemblyman.

Andy Warhol (1927-1987) is the most widely recognized artist of the 1960s Pop Art movement, a genre that would change the American art market indefinitely. Warhol received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Carnegie Institute of Technology in 1949, and subsequently moved to New York City to pursue a career in the arts. It was not long before he was creating ground-breaking works, including paintings, prints, photographs, and films, that brought attention to American pop culture and the lifestyle of Hollywood celebrities. Warhol embraced market culture and helped to lead a change in the New York art scene that would in turn influence others to also look to consumer culture and goods for artistic inspiration. Today, he is regarded as one of the most prominent artists of the twentieth century, contributing not only thousands of works of art that are housed in museums and collections worldwide but also an iconic style that would impact the art market and artists alike for decades. His works have been exhibited in over two thousand exhibitions, including retrospectives at The Gagosian Gallery, New York, NY (2008); Musée National d´Art Moderne, Paris, France (1990); and The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL (1989).
