Zoe Mozert

The most famous female pin-up artist, Mozert (1907 to 1993) is an exemplary disciple of the Rolf Armstrong pastel style. Often her own model, Mozert is noted for rejecting sexy-girl clich├ęs in favor of depicting more real-seeming young women, with recognizably individual features and personalities.

Her cover portraits of Hollywood starlets for such publications as Romantic Movie Stories and Screen Book were particularly popular, but she also contributed covers to such periodicals as American Weekly and True Confessions.

While the bulk of her work including such deliriously romantic nudes as "Moonglow" and "Sweet Dreams" was calendar-oriented (primarily for Brown & Bigelow), Mozert also made a mark as a movie poster artist, notably for Carole Lombard's 'True Confession', and the notorious Jane Russell/Howard Hughes sex and sagebrush saga, 'The Outlaw'. Even her less sultry sirens exude both charm and sex appeal.
