history 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).
