historical notes Anne Thomson was an art collector and patron.

Thomson’s collection included work by, among others, Albert Besnard, Mary Cassatt, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Alfred Sisley, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

Thompson lent paintings to a 1920s exhibition of paintings and drawings by representative modern artists at the Pennsylvania Academy of the fine arts. As a bequest, she left paintings to the Philadelphia Museum of Art as a memorial to her mother and father, Frank and Mary Elizabeth Clarke Thompson.

Thomson also left $100,000 to Philadelphia Orchestra in memory of her late friend Alexander van Rensselaer (fellow art patron).
