Mcilhenny's Art Bequest

June 18, 1986

The celebrated art collection of Henry P. McIlhenny, who died on May 11, has been bequeathed in its entirety to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, at which McIlhenny served for 50 years as curator, trustee and, most recently, chairman of the board.

Paintings, drawings, sculpture, furniture and decorative arts make up the collection, which includes masterpeides by Ingres, Delacroix, Degas, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Seurat, Toulouse-Lautrec and Matisse.

The museum has also been given two paintings by Picasso, one by Matisse, a neo-classical statue, two Japanese figurines, and one 19th and one 18th-Century figurine by Mrs. John Wintersteen (Bernice MccIlhenny Wintersteen). Mrs. Wintersteen was president of the museum from 1964 to 1968 and served on its board until her death on April 23.
