Zoë Mozert 1907-1993 | American Pin-up illustrator


Zoë Mozert born Alice Adelaide Moser, was an American illustrator. She was one of the early 20th Century's most famous pin-up artists and models. In 1925 Mozert entered the Philadelphia School of Industrial Art where she studied under Thornton Oakley, a former student of Howard Pyle. She painted hundreds of magazine covers and movie posters during her career. Mozert frequently was her own model, using cameras or mirrors to capture the pose. Her paintings are best known for their pastel style and realistic depiction of women.
In 1941, Brown and Bigelow bought Mozert's first nude and signed her to an exclusive calendar contract. During the war, her pin-up series for the company called Victory Girls was published both in calendar and mutoscope-card form. In 1946, Mozert created the publicity poster for Republic Pictures' Calendar Girl, a movie about the Gibson Girl. By 1950, Mozert had become one of the "big four" along with Rolf Armstrong, Earl Moran and Gil Elvgren.
Some of Mozert's most famous works includes the poster for Paramount Pictures' True Confession starring Carole Lombard, the poster for the Howard Hughes film The Outlaw with Jane Russell, and her most popular image, Song of the Desert 1950.

Victor Tchetchet 1891-1974 | Pin-up art


Tchetchet was one the earliest pioneers of the modern multihull; he also said to have coined the word 'trimaran'. He was born in Kiev, Ukraine and in 1923 became a Russian émigré living in New York. While still in the Ukraine he was building boats and, inspired by South Pacific outriggers, connected two 18 ft (6.3 m) canoes to make a catamaran. He entered the Kiev Imperial Yacht Club's local races, but was disqualified after beating all other boats. After emigrating to the United States he experimented with catamarans and trimarans, his first trimaran, 24 ft (7.3 m), being launched in 1945. In 1946 he entered the Marblehead Race Week, and though he did not perform well in the race, he overcame the prejudice against multihulls that arose against Herreshoff's AMARYLLIS in 1876 when he beat the fleet at the New York Yacht Club's Centennial Regatta. Victor Tchetchet's best known design was the 24 ft (7.3 m) EGG NOG. He established the International Multihull Boat Racing Association in 1946.

Jean-Gabriel Domergue 1889-1962 | Francia | Pin-up art


Jean-Gabriel Domergue est un peintre français et le petit cousin de Toulouse-Lautrec, il est d'abord remarqué pour ses paysages qu'il peint avec une grande facilité. C'est à partir des années 1920 que s'opère le tournant décisif de sa carrière. Il devient alors le peintre de "la Parisienne". Domergue va inventer un nouveau type de femme, mince, désinvolte, gracile, toujours élégante, et dont les grands yeux regardent le monde avec envie, du haut d'un cou étiré. "Je suis l'inventeur de la pin-up" déclarera-t-il plus tard. Il peindra environ 3 000 portraits. Il fut à partir de 1955 le Conservateur du musée Jacquemart-André à Paris.
