    California Venus sculpture, c. 1895 MARBLE. A beautiful sculpture with a tragic story behind it. Marian Nolan was 16 when she modeled for the sculpture, that was then presented at the worlds fair in Chicago under the name "The California Venus". Years later she was murdered by E. Marshuts whose affection she did not return. Marshuts shot Marian Nolan in the head, then shot himself in the head and fell dead to the sidewalk within a few feet of where the murdered woman lay breathing her last.
