Zoe Mozert was born Alice Adelaide Moser in 1907. An attractive girl herself, she modeled to raise money to pay for art school. In 1925 Mozert had the opportunity to study with Thornton Oakley and Howard Pyle at the Philadelphia School of Industrial Art. Here she honed her craft before moving to New York City in 1932 to begin her career as an artist.
She was an exemplary disciple of the Rolf Armstrong pastel style. She was also the best known of the three “girl’s club” artists, the others being Joyce Ballantyne and Pearl Frush.
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 Confessions.
