Knute O. Munson (1900-1967) – classic American pin up artist.
K.O. Munson was born in Oslo, Norway, grew up in Sweden, but spent most of his life in the United States, where he became famous not only as an artist but also as a successful pin-up photographer.
In 1945, Brown & Bigelow used Munson’s pinups for their Direct Mail Calendar line. He continued to produce dozens of pin-up paintings and drawings for the firm until 1949, when he decided to return to Chicago – there he kept busy as a freelancer.
