Summary

View of the original Corcoran Gallery of Art, designed by James Renwick, Jr. Statues by Moses Ezekiel are in niches on the main facade, the outer niches are missing statues, awnings are on street level windows. The Corcoran was later relocated, and in 1972 the National Collection of Fine Arts, now the Smithsonian American Art Museum, gained additional gallery space with the acquisition of the building now called the Renwick Gallery.
