The works of Lisette Model will be featured in the exhibition Self Reflections: The Expressionist Origins of Lisette Model at Bruce Silverstein. Her photography will be presented alongside the works of European Expressionists Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, George Grosz, Jeanne Mammen, and Lyonel Feininger. Influenced by Expressionist artists, the revered Model was herself a significant influence on other photographers, including Diane Arbus. Her photography is in the collections of many museums including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Getty Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art.
