Bushka B. Kosminski (Manenti)
Active: 1921 - 1936
Entries in London telephone directories suggest her first husband was Max Kosminski. She exhibited a bust of him at the Royal Academy in 1921. In 1930 she married Mario Manenti, art worker and bronze founder. They had been working at the same studios since the early 1920s. The two of them are buried in Florence in the Porte Sante cemetery next to the church of San Miniato.
