About the Collection

Born Hanne Karina Blarke Bayer in Copenhagen, Anna Karina left Denmark at 18 to pursue a modeling career in Paris. Turning down a supporting role in Breathless, she appeared in Michel Deville's Ce Soir Ou Jamais (1961) before accepting the lead in Jean-Luc Godard's second feature, Le Petit Soldat (1963). They married the following year and their cinematic collaboration continued with A Woman is a Woman (1961), Vivre Sa Vie (1962), Band of Outsiders (1964), Alphaville (1965), Pierrot Le Fou (1965), Made in U.S.A. (1966), and Anticipation (in the sketch film Le Plus Vieux Métier Du Monde). Karina also worked with Agnès Varda, Roger Vadim, Luchino Visconti, and Jacques Rivette in this period. After she and Godard divorced in 1965, Karina continued her international film career, appearing in films by George Cukor, Tony Richardson, and Rainer Werner Fassbinder, among others.
