At the center of the catalogue 9 Künstlerinnen und ihre Modelle are nine women artists, all of whom concentrated upon portraits and self-portraits and represent outstanding, exemplary positions in the history of modernism since 1870. Here, the interest is in each artist's specific view of her surroundings, as it is expressed in portraits and self-portraits, and how this gaze has changed between 1870 and today. In nine essays by renowned authors, this is examined through the theme "the artists and their models." In the selection of models, and in the way they are shown, the concept of the portrait as held by Morisot, Cassatt, Modersohn-Becker, Laserstein, Neel, Kahlo, Dumas, Sherman, and Peyton is expressed.

The portrait offers the possibility of observation and introspection, and is at the same time one of the most private and representative artistic genres. But what distinguishes the specifically female gaze? On the occasion of the major fall exhibition 2021 at Fondation Beyeler, this catalog brings together nine women artists from Europe and America from the beginning of modernism to the present day, whose works represent an outstanding contribution to the history of the portrait. The individual view of the artists on themselves and on their surroundings in the course of time is expressed. In the catalog, renowned authors explore the individual artists and their fascinating ways of reflecting on themselves and on others.
The featured artists are Mary Cassatt, Marlene Dumas, Frida Kahlo, Lotte Laserstein, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Berthe Morisot, Alice Neel, Elizabeth Peyton, and Cindy Sherman.
