Bananas and Art History

I heard about a new marketing campaign by Chiquita Bananas called “Banana Masterpiece,” which involves their take on famous artworks incorporated into their stickers that they place on bananas. It’s a collection of 12 stickers that reproduce famous portraits from art history where the main subject of the portrait is transformed into a banana. For example, here’s their version of the famous Leonardo da Vinci painting “Lady with an Ermine.”

Just for fun, we decided to make our own banana-inspired masterpieces, with modified versions of Rene Magritte’s “Son of Man” below left, and Guiseppe Arcimboldo’s “Summer” below right.
