Who hasn’t heard of Chiquita? The most famous banana celebrates art through great 12 female portraits, “made” by famous artists like Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso or Andy Warhol.
Since 1944, when the name Chiquita was introduced, until now the stamp has changed many times, often hosting artistic contributions, such as that of Romero Britto (2018).
The 12 stickers, created by comics artist Mariangela Rinaldi, reinterpreting famous artworks in a personal manner. “Each banana thus becomes a new and fun way to pamper yourself in a moment of excellent taste, both with fruit and art”, she says.
And so, on the Chiquita stickers we find the portrait of Adele Bloch-Chiquita, by Gustav Klimt, The Birth of the Chiquita, by Sandro Botticelli, The Portrait of a Chiquita Banana with a Hat, by Amedeo Modigliani or The Banana L’étoile Chiquita, by Edgar Degas etc.
