Andy Warhol (American, 1928 - 1987). "Banana". Original color silkscreen. 1981. Signed in pencil, upper left. Edition unknown, probably very small. Light cream wove paper. The full sheet. Fine impression. Very good condition. Literature/catalogue raisonne: cf. Marechal 29; Feldman/Schellmann II.10. Overall size: 24 3/8 x 12 1/4 in. (619 x 311 mm). Extremely rare. No auction records located. Created for the exhibition of Warhol's record album covers at the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Aarhus, Denmark, and the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm, Sweden, in 1981. Features the famous image of the banana, which Warhol created for the cover of the legendary 1967 Velvet Underground and Nico record album. There was also a catalogue issued for this exhibition, with a non-Warhol image on the cover. Undoubtedly to be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonne of Warhol's non-commissioned posters by Paul Marechal.
