Baz was a pin-up and glamour artist who became well known
in the late 1940s and early 1950s for his association with
Esquire magazine. Beginning in 1946, he painted pin-ups
for that publication's Gallery of Glamour and later contributed
to their calendars and monthly centerfolds as well.
Born in Mexico in 1906, Baz was extremely prolific. Aside
from pin-up and Glamour art, he provided story illustrations
to mainstream magazines, worked on various national advertising
campaigns, and was a successful paperback novel cover artist.
