Andy Warhol computer images from 1985 released

    Cybersleuths have used their skills to unearth images that Andy Warhol apparently made on a computer in 1985.

    The Andy Warhol Museum says in a release that the artist had a contract with Commodore International to produce images on an Amiga home computer.

    The museum says the images vary from doodles and camera shots of a desktop to versions of Warhol’s classic images of a banana, Marilyn Monroe, and Campbell’s soup.

    The old images were extracted by members of Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Mellon University Computer Club in collaboration with museum staff.
