Restoration of the exterior of the Renwick Gallery is completed when statues of Peter Paul Rubens and Estaban Murillo are placed in second floor niches on the outside of the renovated museum building. The sculptures are duplicates of the originals by Moses Ezekiel that occupied the niches in the late 19th century when the Renwick served as the first Corcoran Gallery of Art .
