Created by legendary poster artist and illustrator Robert Tanenbaum, it was used as a poster and also on the cover of the DVDs.

It comes from the personal collection of the artist. The painting has been mounted, framed and glazed.

Married to the Mob is a 1988 American comedy film directed by Jonathan Demme, starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Matthew Modine. Pfeiffer, in something of a departure from her previous roles, gave an acclaimed lead performance as a gangster's widow from Brooklyn, opposite Modine as the undercover FBI agent assigned the task of investigating her mafia connections. As a slippery mob boss romantically pursuing Angela, Dean Stockwell was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

Robert Tanenbaum was born in Missouri in 1936. A gifted portrait artist from early on, Tanenbaum easily captured a sitter's likeness. This talent led him to study art at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, where he earned his Fine Arts degree. In 1964 he moved from Missouri to Los Angeles where his skill in depicting a person's character was utilized in the production of movie posters. His other illustrations include 2 1/2 years of ads for Levi jeans. The group portrait of all the actors of the television series /Roots/ was shown at the beginning of this well-known series.

Robert has a system of working with casein and oils involving a preliminary graphite drawing on a gessoed board. Next, about 80% of the composition is laid in using casein. Over the casein he applies oil paint.
