‘Jane Fonda I’ is a stunning Silkscreen from contemporary artist David Studwell. This piece is from a Limited Edition of 10, printed on Magnani Litho paper and signed and numbered by the artist.
This piece uses Silver Metallic paint and features American actress, writer and fashion inspiration Jane Fonda. David Studwell supplied us with the following information surrounding the prints influences/inspiration;
‘The actress had just finished working on Klute - hence her distinctive haircut - when she was arrested at an airport in Cleveland on November 3, 1970. The customs officers wrongly accused Fonda of drug smuggling after finding vitamins labelled b, l and d (breakfast, lunch and dinner) in her bag. Known for her political activism, her arrest over something so innocent as vitamins was a sign of the paranoia of the time. At the time, the actress was on her way back from speaking at an anti-Vietnam war fundraiser in Canada.’
