American Mid-Century Advertising Poster for ‘Chiquita Banded Bananas’, 1955

$375.00

This is an American Mid-Century Modern period advertising poster for Chiquita Banded Bananas. This modern yet playful image anthropomorphizes Chiquita bananas, focusing primarily on a “lady” banana dressed in a ruffled pink skirt with ruffled shoulders, wearing high heels and a flower-filled hat, and standing in a spotlight on the left hand side. She is conducting a group of four singing, banded bananas that are in another spotlight on the right side of the poster. The image features a bold color scheme of pink, yellow, blue, black and white, creating an elegantly tropical texture. The simple block typography perfectly complements this entertaining and witty Mid-Century Modern period poster.
