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 clichés in favor of depicting
more real-seeming young women, with recognizably individual features
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
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.
