    My Life to Live (Union Films, 1963). Very Fine- on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (39.5" X 55.25") Donelli Artwork.
    It's Heritage's first time to auction this stylistic poster, showcasing a striking portrait by artist Donelli. Jean Luc-Godard's Vivre Sa Vie depicts the life of a young woman (Anna Karina, Godard's wife at the time) who turns to prostitution in order to pay her rent. Presented as a series of twelve episodes, each with a title card and list of characters, the film was largely improvised, with Godard rarely shooting retakes. This evocative Italian poster has professional restoration applied to slight fold wear and separation, as well as small chips and tears. Still visible are thin dust shadows. The right border is partially airbrushed.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
