LOS ANGELES, CA.- Julien's Auctions
, the world record breaking auction house to the stars, has announced Property from the Collection of Jane Fonda, an exquisite collection of fashion, art, jewelry, decorative arts and personal items representing the life and career of the cinematic icon. Two-time Academy award winner and seven time nominee, Emmy Award winner and four-time Golden Globe winner, Fonda has appeared in more than 50 films and television series. The age-defying actress has firmly established herself as an icon of her generation and a Hollywood legend who paved the way for women throughout her entire life.
Born to Hollywood actor Henry Fonda and Frances Ford Seymour, Jane Fonda began her career in the off-Broadway play There was a Little Girl where she received her first Tony Award nomination. Shortly thereafter, Fonda starred in a range of films including Barefoot in the Park as free spirited Corrie, as TV news reporter Kimberly Wells in The China Syndrome, and sci-fi symbol in the title role of cult classic Barbarella directed by her then husband Roger Vadim.
In 1972, she won the Oscar for Klute in which she played high-priced prostitute Bree Daniels. Her second Oscar came in 1978 for her role as Sally Hyde in "Coming Home," a story about the plight of Vietnam veterans which she co-produced. In 1980, Fonda co-produced the film Nine to Five (co-starring Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton) which was the second-highest-grossing film of the year.
In 1982, Jane Fonda introduced her wildly successful Jane Fonda Workout videos, a revolution that not only changed the way women exercised but also is credited with creating the home-video market. Fonda has also been on the forefront of political and social consciousness.
Jane Fonda spearheaded the first-ever transgender production of The Vagina Monologues, which ran at the Off-Broadway Westside Theatre after a limited run at the HERE Arts Center in 1996. The New York Times called the play "probably the most important piece of political theatre of the last decade."
