There is a novelty in the permanent exhibition of the Georgian National Museum Dimitri Shevardnadze National Gallery. Due to the great interest of visitors, Niko Pirosmanashvili's works "Yard Cleaner" and "Eagle Seizing a Hare" - now on the view.  

Both paintings were the ownership of Ilya and Kirill Zdanevich until 1930 when Dimitri Shevardnadze bought part of their collection (39 paintings) including the "Yard Cleaner" and "Eagle Seizing a Hare". Today, both paintings are among the collection of Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts.

For decades, both paintings were repeatedly exposed. "Yard Cleaner" and another painting of Pirosmanashvili "Ortachala Beauty" were presented in 1964 in Rotterdam, at the international exhibition of self-taught artists. In 2012-2013 years, paintings were showcased at the exhibition dedicated to the 150 year anniversary of Niko Pirosmanashvili at the Dimitri Shevardnadze National Gallery.
