A design that became a veritable icon for the bewigged one and his beloved Velvet Underground, Warhol’s banana was first created for the band’s debut album cover. A playful take on a Pop masterpiece, the limited-edition Banana Plate is produced by Rosenthal in partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation, and is a thoughtful gift for that Warhol fanatic in your life—you.
Andy Warhol’s original Banana album cover design featured a yellow banana that could be removed to uncover the flesh of a pink banana underneath!
In 1980 Andy Warhol visited Rosenthal AG in Selb to arrange a portrait of founder Philip Rosenthal. Warhol was inspired by his visit to Rosenthal, especially by the atmosphere in Erkersreuth Castle. Based upon Polaroid shots taken in Selb, a later portrait of Philip Rosenthal was created in Warhol's New York 'Factory' Studio.
