MORR KUSNET

Born Morris Kusnetzov in New York, Morr Kusnet  (1908 – 1990) was a commercial artist who provided newspapers with portraits of film stars.

By 1935, Morr was  doing magazine covers , and as late as 1963, he did a cover of Carol Burnett for TV Guide.

Here are some examples of his work. There was mention on pulp artists.com of a charcoal drawing he did of the 12 ANGRY MEN, but I haven’t been able to find a copy.

I’m not sure if he was ever employed  by any of the studios  , or just freelanced.

A fine artist.

  1. Vienna, I so enjoy viewing these wonderful examples of art from the GOLDEN AGE. Morr Kusnet had so much talent that we can still appreciate and enjoy. I really like the Lamarr/ Taylor, Ann Sothern, and Day/Cagney.
