Germanic Museum Gets Two Statues

Two monuments illustrating the transition from the Romanesque period to the Gothic have been given to the Germanic Museum by German American friends of the museum in New York and other cities. These statues worthily complete the museum's exhibition of thirteenth century Saxon sculpture.

A portrait of Adolphus Busch, donor of the building, has been given by his widow, Mrs. Lilly Busch. The picture, a copy of the portrait painted by Anders Zorn shortly before Mr. Busch's death, now hangs in the vestibule of the museum.

The work of transforming the story above the Renaissance Hall into a lecture room seating 150 persons and of connecting it with stairways leading to the lower parts of the building has now been completed. The lecture room is suitable for public lectures and has been used for classes since the beginning of the second half-year.
