    I'm doing a presentation for school on Katherine Lane Weems who sculpted the Indian Rhino bronzes Bessie & Victoria. I'm looking for a photo of the female Indian Rhino, Bessie that she used as a reference for the life-sized bronzes at Harvard (the Bronx ones are casts). Do you know where to find a photo of her? She sculpted the rhinos in the 1930's. Thanks for your help.
