The Movie Poster Art of Robert Tanenbaum

Availability: In stock

A lavishly illustrated hardcover art book that will take you through the movie posters of Robert Tanenbaum’s famed career. Featuring anecdotes and rare vintage photographs of the creative process throughout.

In Robert Tanenbaum's 60+ year career in the arts industry, he never could have imagined the scope of his work and how recognizable it would be years down the road. Tanenbaum moved to Los Angeles in 1964 to pursue painting for advertising and hoped to create movie posters for some of the biggest studios that ever existed. It wasn't until he moved to a new house a decade ago and was cataloguing his old slides from the late 60's to the 90's that he realized he had worked on over 250 movies. The posters that Tanenbaum created for these movies are as memorable as the films themselves, including but not limited to: "Cujo," "A Christmas Story," "Battlestar Galactica," "The Color of Money," and "Superfly." 

Because of his ingenious ability to work in such a range of artistic styles, Tanenbaum was able to create posters for a plethora of genres, narratives, and studios. The most reoccuring commentary he received at signings was, "I had no idea you did that," leaving movie posters fans in awe of his diversity of talent.
