ZOE MOZERT (1907-1993)

"Set to Go."

Pin-up illustration, 1957, reproduced for the 1959 calendar by Brown & Bigelow. Pastel on board, circa 1940. 813x610 mm; 32x24 inches. Signed "Zoe Mozert" in center bottom. Framed to 39x31 inches.

A classic portrait of a radiant beauty in a black lace bodice gown ready for an evening out, by the famous artist and model. Mozert descended from the school of Howard Pyle, having studied under his student, Thornton Oakley, at the Pennsylvania Museum School of Industrial Art. She quickly became one of the 20th century's top pin-up artists. This portrait is a perfect example of her artistry.
