Exhibit on Lisette Model and Her Students at Mt. Holyoke

Posted By Administration, Thursday, September 24, 2009

What made Lisette Model's reputation was a series of photographs she took on the French Riviera in the 1930s. They offered an unsparing view of well-fed self-indulgence - the good life as grotesquerie.

There is no small irony in Model's becoming famous in such a fashion. So much of the force of her photographs stems from a refusal to moralize or judge.

The only complaint to make about "Lisette Model and Her Successors'' at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum is that Model's own images make up barely a fifth of the 121 photographs in it. Model was a legendary teacher, and along with her own work the show includes pictures from 11 of her pupils.
