Where Warhol got the banana (maybe)

This showed up among the plethora of 50th anniversary articles. Pretty cool!

It is the same banana. Nice find (the article)!

Can we assume the ashtray pre-dates the design? Whichever, I would guess Warhol would have used a repro from a newspaper.

What the article does not mention is that the original idea for the cover was to use a plastic surgery photograph – a nose-job.
