    We are pleased to be offering 15 paintings and sculpture from the collection of Jane Fonda. These works adorned the walls of her various homes since the 1980s.

    It is nearly unnecessary to write an introduction about the acclaimed career of Jane Fonda, as she is so well known to us all. We have grown up watching her many theater productions, iconic movies, exercise and inspirational videos, political activism, extensive humanitarian and women's rights work, not to mention her current sitcom. She has endured life in the public eye as graciously and famously as anyone in Hollywood today.

    Judging from the outstanding plein-air paintings that she has collected, Jane Fonda has an eye for discerning collecting as well. Her interest in the paintings of Marion Kavanaugh Wachtel led her to collect several of the best examples of the artist's work we have seen. Additionally, Alson Skinner Clark's 'Fruit Pickers, 1922' is considered by many to be one of Clark's finest known paintings. We are very proud to be presenting these paintings and sculpture for auction. Lots 32 through 46 are from her distinguished collection.
