Andy Warhol Jane Fonda lithograph to star in major sale

An Andy Warhol lithograph of Jane Fonda is the lead lot of a sale of pieces from her personal collection at Julien's Auctions.

The work dates to 1982 and is valued at $25,000-30,000.

Jane Fonda Warhol
The lithograph is one of an edition of 25 artist's proofs from 1982

It was issued in an edition of 25 trial proofs and shows the actress in her iconic role as 1960s science fiction sex symbol Barbarella.

While the film had been largely ignored in the US on its release, a 1977 re-release brought it a cult following.

Other trial proofs have sold well in the past, with an example on a red background achieving $38,676 earlier this year.

The sale features a range of items that tell the story of Fonda's life, from a copy of her 1955 yearbook to the gown she wore at her 1991 marriage to Ted Turner.

Also on offer is the iconic black and red leotard she wore on the cover of her hugely successful 1982 Jane Fonda Workout book.

The programme was later released on video, then an entirely new format.

Despite this it still sold millions, with many people reportedly buying new (and expensive) VCRs specifically to watch it.

The lot is expected to make around $1,000-2,000.

The sale will take place in LA on September 23.
