For her collegiate education Zoe Mozert attended the Philadelphia School of Industrial Art.

The medium most used by Mozert was pastel. Mozert illustrated many magazine and calenders over her lengthy career.

In this clip we listen to singer Perry Como whilst viewing some remarkable paintings by Mozert. From an artistic standpoint in many works her viewpoints show her great sense of draftsmanship. For instance a profile painting for us whilst but in the mirror the character holds its a three quarters view. What a remarkable artist:

Zoe Mozert passed away in 1993.

Mozert will hopefully be rediscovered soon by the artworld. Technically her work was often times more stronger than those of Gil Elvgren or George Petty. Long live the pin up vibe! Her work seems so strong and honest because on many occasions she served as her own model!

Price range information: Works range from $1,000 to $20,000.
