Kühne Beveridge

Kühne Beveridge (born 1874, Springfield, Illinois - ?) was an American sculptor. She studied under William R. O'Donovan in New York City, and under Rodin in Paris. Among her works are a statue called "Rhodesia," "Rough Rider Monument," a statue called "Lascire," which belongs to Dr. Jameson, busts of Cecil Rhodes, King Edward VII, Grover Cleveland, Adlai Stevenson, Joseph Jefferson, Buffalo Bill, Bryan Mahon, Tom L. Johnson, and many others. Beveridge was first noticed as an artist in the US in 1892, when her busts of former President Cleveland and Mr. Jefferson called favorable attention to her. She received honorable mention in Paris twice. In 1893, she married Charles Coghlan, and soon discovered that he had a living wife at the time of her marriage and obtained a divorce. Before she went to South Africa Beveridge had executed several commissions for Cecil Rhodes and others living in that country. Her mother became the Countess von Wrede. Beveridge married a second time, an American, Mr. Branson, who resided at Johannesburg, in the Transvaal.[1]
